Castle Fitzjohns Gallery is proud to present the book launch and month-long solo exhibition of new unseen works by Erica Simone, one of New York’s hottest up-and-coming and controversial fine art photographers.
Her acclaimed series, Nue York: Self-Portraits of a Bare Urban Citizen, are a surprising collection of images, taken over a six year span, which portray the artist going about everyday life on the busy streets of New York City entirely in the nude.
The book, published by Damiani this month, comprises 50 photographs from the series and a special collector’s edition will be available exclusively through the gallery.
Seventeen works sponsored by Moab Legion Paper and Uptown Fine Art Printing Studio will be on display through February 14th, 2016. Proceeds from sales will be donated to the charity Beauty For Freedom, whose mission is to raise awareness and to directly help organizations in the fight against human trafficking.
