VaultWorks, Duggal Visual Solutions, and the New York Artists Equity Association are pleased to present VaultWorks: Eye Contact, a gallery exhibition of rarely seen Fine Art photographs of iconic musicians who became cultural pillars. Through a curated collection of brilliant portrait work by three of its represented photographers - Tim Bret-Day, Phil Knott, and Derrick Santini - VaultWorks is telling a story in tune with the beat of New York's measured reawakening into the spring season. The classic photographs show icons before the depth of their cultural impact was fully realized, and beg the question: What's next as New York re-emerges from its slumber, as it has so many times before? Or, as the tapestry of New York's culture weaves onwards, stitched by the many hands that never left hold of its technicolor threading, maybe the better question is Who's Next? Together, we'll ask the question, and our hope will encourage the answer.

Artist ( Description ): 

Phil Knott

Phil Knott is a British born, L.A.-based photographer Phil knott has been producing images for well over 15 years. Rich in content and creativity, Phil presents a style that is beautiful, soulful, and honest in its capacity to extract what is raw from his subjects.  Knott has invented a niche for himself, attracting a wide range of clients including Paramount Pictures, Stussy, Versace Sport and Fragrance, Sony records, RCA, Atlantic, Universal, EMI, Steve Madden, Hennessy, Afro-Punk and 81 magazine.  5 years ago Phil started to work in collage and has produced work for Stussy, Bathing Ape, Roc-a-Fella, The Face, Spin, Complex, and Flaunt. Phil Knott is behind the seminal images of a galaxy of music stars, from Prince and Liam Gallagher to Chris Martin and Justin Timberlake.
 

Tim Bret-Day

Tim Bret-Day is a Londoner, starting out as a member of the paparazzi before changing direction and going to college. After assisting in the top flight of the fashion world he embarked on a solo career which led to him working for all the top fashion magazines. A new change in direction meant following a freer more creative style which led to him shooting top agency work all over the world, such as Nike, Mercedes, Agent Provocateur, Harvey Nichols, Virgin, to name but a few. He is currently working on a book covering his illustrious career in photography.
 

Derrick Santini 

Derrick Santini hails from Scarborough, North Yorkshire and discovered his love for photography at the age of thirteen, whilst taking pictures with his mum’s old Agfa camera. Derrick spent his teenage years recording everything he saw; initially a silent and passive observer, he came to regard the images he took as slices of life, ’moments in-between’, as statements about the individual, society, culture - and ultimately as an expression of the human condition.  After this initial period prolific in reportage, Derrick’s talent saw him propelled into the fields of portraiture, music photography, fashion and advertising, where he developed a more confrontational approach to image making - one based on interaction and personality. He soon became renowned for his intimate and insightful portraiture style, particularly within the music industry where there rapidly became a huge demand for his iconic images.
