Fort Works Art presents "The View from The Inside," featuring artwork by acclaimed portrait photographer Kate Simon. In this follow up to "Chaos and Cosmos," her first solo exhibition at FWA, Simon showcases a smaller group of selected vintage Color Cibachromes from her personal archives.

These photographs represent singular and individual moments of importance, for the artist in her life, spanning throughout her 50 plus year career. A balance must exist between subject and photographer, to capture these moments that truly reflect the subject. This is brilliantly illustrated in "The View from The Inside."

Simon is more than a capturer of moments. To say she is a living legend in the art world is an understatement. Her relationships with her subjects is truly rare. Simon’s professionalism, coupled with an intimacy that the subject will only allow when they trust and admire the photographer, is what sets her apart.

Whether we’re looking at a portrait of Robert Mapplethorpe, Louise Bourgeois, or Grace Jones, the gaze they give into or away from Simon’s lens embodies who they are fully and freely. When capturing these specific moments of such celebrated figures, Simon manages to capture each of their unique spirits and souls.

The exhibition will remain on display through December 17.
