Gallery 181 showcases the work of renowned portrait photographer Timothy White.
If every picture tells a story, photographer Timothy White’s (timothywhite.com) work tells the story’s most important arc. White, named one of the most influential people in photography by American Photo, always finds ways to shoot with a personal narrative in mind: Robin William with a wry grin and canary feathers in his mouth; Sophia Loren’s sexy, bold bedside glance into the middle distance; Elizabeth Taylor exiting a limo and addressing the paparazzi with middle fingers raised. This fall, a celebration of White’s work— dubbed Icons—debuts at Gallery 181 at 181 Fremont Residences.
“Art has always been central to the fabric of the Jay Paul Company, so it was a natural extension to do something special in this building,” says Matt Lituchy, chief investment officer at Jay Paul Company, 181 Fremont’s developer.
Timothy White’s Icons exhibit runs through Jan. 31 at Gallery 181 at 181 Fremont in San Francisco and includes scores of celebrity portraits like Paul Newman.
As a partner in The Morrison Hotel Gallery (morrisonhotelgallery.com), White regularly curates and produces events in New York and Los Angeles. His San Francisco show continues a tradition of dazzling art patrons with work as ageless as its subjects.
