Fine Art Book: Cross

Please join me at AC Gallery 6585 Santa Monica Blvd in Hollywood on April 23, 7 – 10 pm for the gala reception for the group show “Sexy” featuring my work “Willing Captive” and the fine art box set “CROSS” for the Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA).

“CROSS is a most desirable collectors item.  The price is considerable: $900.00. But for that you have a fine art box that is  collection of images made by a photographer whose work is compared to that of Herb Ritz and Robert Mapplethorpe.”

(Note: 3/21/2016 – It is ironic, if not sad, to note that not long after this work was released and compared to that of Robert Mapplethorpe, that a controversy on this subject matter has erupted in the art world in West Hollywood. At the time when exhibits of Mapplethorpe’s work have just opened at the J. Paul Getty Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the city of West Hollywood confiscated works of art displaying moderate nudity. We will however exhibit this work through out the Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA) as scheduled.)

Press release

For Immediate Release
March 11, 2016

“CROSS” a limited edition fine art box set curated and produced by Artists Corner Gallery is now available at the gallery where it has taken its place alongside fine art books by such distinguished photographers as Mario Testino and Ellen von Unwerth. It will be on display at the gallery through the Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA – April) along with other works by the artist to be announced.

Exhibit party will be held at AC Gallery on April 23rd, beginning at 7:00 PM.  Your presence is requested.  The gallery is located at 6585 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood, CA.

“CROSS”, a defining work for Stout, has been compared in critical reviews to the work of Herb Ritz and Robert Mapplethorpe – whose entire body of work was recently acquired by the J. Paul Getty Museum.

The edition is limited to 9 sets. The set contains 10 13 x 19 photos printed on archival grade fine art paper – each suitable for framing – protected within a hand crafted fabric covered clamshell box. The price starts at $900.00.

Mark Stout is a fine art photographer currently located in Los Angeles.  He is known for his ability to elicit beauty, emotion and attitude from his subject that they themselves often did not know they possessed.
