From Trey Speegle’s post on

Chuck Samuels frequently photographs or films himself. While his work has been exhibited internationally quite extensively since 1980, this is the artist’s first solo show in New York City. His work often touches upon art history, feminism, and psychoanalysis. For this exhibit, “Before The Camera,” Samuels recreated twelve astonishingly faithful portraits of nude women from the history of photography by modern masters like Paul Outerbridge, Man Ray, and Richard Avedon, among others.

“Chuck Samuels: Before The Camera” opens at ClampArt tonight in Chelsea and runs through March 28, 2015.
