  • Catalogue Essay

    Inspired by the Old Masters, Mario Sorrenti‘s beauty shot of Daria Werbowy plays on classical hairstyles, as well as the traditional treatment of lighting, and the positioning of the sitter. Taken for the September 2004 issue of Vogue Paris, this timeless portrait is imbued with soft sensuality. Since his rise to prominence in the early 1990s, Sorrenti has become famed for creating photographs that highlight his subject’s vulnerable beauty. His work has been widely exhibited and published, including his 2013 monograph Draw Blood for Proof, based on his large-scale installation in 2004. Sorrenti’s work resides in a number of public collections, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the National Portrait Gallery, London; and the New York Public Library.
