Shy, bold photographer Rick Legal
The Eastwood Onley Gallery, which I co-own with Peter Eastwood, is hosting a photography exhibition by photographer Rick Legal in April.
Rick Legal is relatively new to the Vancouver Photography scene, nevertheless his nude photographs constitute some of the most powerful images I have seen. There are two other photographers I can think of, whose works are also very strong but in a different style. One is the highly controversial Japanese photographer, Nobuyoshi Araki. His works are controversial and some are considered to be pornographic. Ralph Gibson is an American photographer who also photographs nudes, but his works are virtually abstract.

Works by Rick Legal
His black and white images are not necessarily beautiful, although some are striking, edgy and unexpected.
The exhibition is scheduled from April 1 to April 4.
The Eastwood Onley Gallery: 2075 Alberta St. Vancouver BC. ( between 4th and 5th Avenue )
Opening reception: April 1st, starting at 6 pm.
