The exhibition taking place in New York, will feature new and well known works from the artist's oeuvre newly printed for the exhibition. D'Orazio is know for his glamorous images of models, celebrities, rock legends and artists.
Sante D'Orazio • Other Graces focuses on large scale editions of photographs taken over the artist's twenty year career. The forthcoming exhibition catalogue for Other Graces will feature an essay by acclaimed writer and editor Glenn O'Brien.
"So here we have a boy named Sante, that is Latin for Blessed, D'Orazio, that's Italian for "of Prayer." If ever there was an apt recipient for Grace, this must be the place, this must be the guy. You might think that his folks were hoping for a priest, but they got something even better. They got an artist. " – Glenn O'Brien, Sante D'Orazio • Other Graces
"His pictures are remarkably free of staging tactics and his vision the result of the shortest distance between two points. The Saint [D'Orazio] has eye savvy. Nothing in his images is falsified." — Ed Ruscha, Barely Private
