CAITLIN MITCHELL PHOTOGRAPHY PRESENTS MON PETIT SECRET, A SOLO SHOW IN CONJUNCTION WITH MADAME X, NEW YORK CITY.
NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK – OCTOBER 14, 2009 – Caitlin Mitchell Photography presents Mon Petit Secret, a series of original black and white photographs by Caitlin Mitchell, featuring model Leigh Yeager. In Mon Petit Secret, Ms. Mitchell’s photos are particularly notable for their innovative application of natural light and choice of setting, used to illustrate the movement and beauty of the image, while simultaneously capturing the magnetic sexuality of the subject matter. The solo show premieres at Madame X, located at 94 West Houston Street, New York, NY with doors opening at 6PM on Wednesday October 14, 2009, and continuing through November 9, 2009.
Mon Petit Secret is a series of hand-selected black and white photos meant to depict a young, sensual, Parisian woman captured in her private moments throughout the day. The series as a whole tells a story about the voyeuristic and perhaps, secret relationship between the subject matter and the viewer. The photos offer a commentary on independence, anticipation, private spaces and moments, youth, and the juxtaposition between raw sexuality and the beauty of the lingerie-adorned female form.
