About Gavin Bond
Sultry and slick, Gavin Bond's photographs capture the surface-oriented worlds of celebrity and fashion culture. Focused on women's bodies and famous personalities, Bond is known for his behind-the-scenes images of Victoria's Secret runway shows and his candid portraits of celebrities like Charlie Sheen and Jay-Z. Striking a balance between posed and candid, his celebrity portraits often reveal an intimate side of the actors and musicians they depict and frequently employ biographical props. Actor Ed Harris holds a monocle over his eye, while a portrait of Dominic Monaghan shows the actor with insects covering his face, a reference to his love of exotic animals. Bond's images of women's bodies often omit their heads and faces, instead focusing on their long, toned limbs and curvaceous backsides.
British, b. 1970, based in New York, New York
