This February Gallery 211 celebrates 50 years in the career of one of the
world’s most influential and iconic photographers - Marco Glaviano. This important retrospective

Marco Glaviano began his career shooting in Milan and New York and launching there the careers of
some of the world's most important supermodels including Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Eva
Herzigova and Paulina Porizkova.
With a career spanning 5 decades this photography exhibition is complete in presenting a selection of

A special limited edition collector’s art book and print has been published by Space Contemporary Art
Gallery. It is available with a choice of 4 different covers and with only 50 of each cover produced to
mark the 50 years. Comprised of 362 pages, it features many previously unpublished photos, and an

the book as well as the limited edition fine art print pertaining to the cover image.
Glaviano 50 is a celebration of Marco Glaviano’s extensive career containing all of his major
photographic work. It is the narrative of his life - a juicy archive full of beautiful and classic images that
have made Marco Glaviano the timeless and legendary photographer he is today.
For collectors of his work and collectors of fine art photography this is a rare opportunity to own a
signed, numbered, limited edition volume – as well as the fine art print of one of his photographs.
The exhibition also presents two special limited edition collector’s portfolios.
The first of these special series is the iconic Cindy Crawford Kiss portfolio. This collection of 12 pieces
takes the well know Kiss image which is reproduced in all the different pop art colors – and the works
are sprinkled with diamond dust. “The series of Cindy Crawford Kiss is from a shoot that we did in St
Barth in the 90s for Italian Vogue, it is a very simple picture but it is very iconic and also shows a
different side of Cindy. Cindy and I have taken hundreds of pictures in St Barth but most were for her
famous calendars and too sexy, the Kiss makes me smile and feel good” - MG The collectors set is
designed to be hung as a full wall installation and a limited number are available... Additionally a
