The Young Gallery has an exceptional collection of photographs by both renowned and recently discovered photographers. The feast of visuals includes elegantly haunting images of African wildlife by Nick Brandt, Night Views of cities by Floriane de Lassée, salad vegetables by Viktor Polson, nudes and portraits by Patrick Demarchelier and images of Tibet, Mongolians and Tibetans by Richard Gere.

The African wildlife photos are spectacular.

Wow, it is so rare (IMO anyway) to see fine art brought to wildlife like the African wildlife pictures. Extraordinary. The nudes and portraits were interesting and a couple stood out. I am kind of a fan of veggies (example, Weston) but those didn't do anything for me. Probably would be more interesting "live", with light tables and some kind of fake veggies.

I agree that the African wildlife photos are fantastic (my favorite is "Elephant Cathedral"). I also enjoyed the animal photos in the Demarchelier collection, especially "Giraffes."

A winning art photograph should be a black and white image of a female celebrity wearing only light bondage gear smoking tobacco.

A gentle nudge to explore the Young Gallery link and see the other photographers as well, like the weird doll's eyed people of Katya Legendre and the beautiful flower ones of Paul Solberg.
