OUT OF FASHION
January 29 - APRIL 11, 2015
Atlanta (January 21, 2015) – Hagedorn Foundation Gallery is pleased to present Out of Fashion, works from photographer Landon Nordeman, opening January 29, 2015 and running through April 11.
Described by New York Magazine’s The Cut as their “backstage photographer extraordinaire,” Nordeman was dispatched to photograph fashion weeks in New York, Milan and Paris during September 2014. During three intense weeks—and through more than 100 shows—his photographs, which Instagram described on their blog, as “reminiscent of Martin Parr and Guy Bourdin,” documented the high-paced chaos of all that surrounds the catwalks. His images, exhibited here for the first time, are comprised of surprising moments and juxtapositions and are filled with color.
Nordeman’s unique point of view, characterized by National Geographic senior picture editor Sadie Quarrier, as “delightful, bold and unexpected,” provided his audience—many of whom follow his work on his Instagram feed—with a fresh perspective on the world of fashion.
“Photography for me is about discovery and appreciation,” states Nordeman. “It is a way of probing the world, and making pictures to satisfy my curiosity.”
Nordeman will return in March for a panel discussion about fine art, fashion photography and Instagram, date TBA. For the Out of Fashion series, Nordeman shot the Fall 2014 international fashion shows, and this exhibition will offer the highlights from his magical, bitingly stylish eye.
Landon Nordeman (born 1974, NYC) has photographed around the world for fine art projects as well as commercial clients. American Photography, Communication Arts, Pictures of the Year International, The PDN Photo Annual, The Best of Photojournalism, The Center for Documentary Studies, PDN's 30, The Society for Publication Design and The James Beard Foundation have all commended his work.
Nordeman's photographs have been exhibited at The Howard Greenberg Gallery in NYC, The Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing among other venues, are in significant private collections and that of The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and The Columbus Museum of Art. His editorial client list includes The New Yorker, New York Magazine, ESPN The Magazine, and Vogue.

Atlanta (December 19, 2014) – Hagedorn Foundation Gallery is pleased to welcome Savannah painter katherine sandoz for an exhibition of paintings of the Georgia landscape color fields. The exhibition of new works opens January 29, 2015 and runs through March 21.
Savannah’s katherine sandoz paints soft, luminous color field style paintings, of the Georgia landscape. She examines everyday formations and offers work - in sizes varying from 24’ to 12 x 12” - that celebrates what is precious and unique. Analyzing and reframing small moments and neglected details of the day, sandoz covers large areas of her surfaces with thinned and fluid paint in loose abstractions, allowing the viewer to pay attention to what are essentially the backdrops of our everyday life – the natural landscape. A clever environmentalist, she makes a practice of using native, recycled, repurposed and up-cycled materials and playfully bonds them with conceptual twists and layered narratives.
katherine sandoz (b.1969, Wonalancet, NH) has worked with many of the fashion industry’s top names and this year created 50 illustrations of industry models and fashionistas for a London-based retailer (publication forthcoming). She also handled the formarina backdrop and painted a large-scale biographical work for Pierre Cardin. She has held art/drawing/painting workshops in the South of France for visitors coming from Paris Fashion Week and is collected by many notable names including Walter O. Evans, Sir David Tang, Hamish Bowles and Glenn Close. Sandoz has exhibited extensively throughout the Southeast, particularly in Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia, as well as in Milan, Italy and multiple locations in France.
She earned a BA in French and International Relations from Mount Holyoke College in 1991, then MFAs from Savannah College of Art & Design in Illustration in 1997 and Painting in 2005. From 1987-1997, she served as SGT/E-5 in the US Army Reserves. Today, Sandoz resides in Savannah, Georgia.
