Lawrence Fine Art is pleased to announce that it will make its second appearance at Context Art Miami during Miami Art Week. Located at One Herald Plaza, in Downtown Miami, Context will open December 4 with a gala VIP preview and continue through Sunday, December 9.  
 
The theme of our booth at this year's Context Art Miami will be "Beauty Studies," and, specifically, changing conceptions of female beauty as reflected in the iconic work of photographer Howard Schatz. Throughout his twenty-five year career Schatz has often used dancers for his explorations of beauty, grace and movement. His work during this time has incorporated White, Black, Hispanic and Asian dancers and models. Our booth will explore society's greater acceptance of "non-traditional" visions of female beauty whether they be women of color or different body types.
 
Howard Schatz gave up a career as a retinal surgeon to follow his passion for photography. He was awarded the 2015 IPA International Photography Award for Book of the Year for his retrospective, "Schatz Images: 25 Years." The IPA Awards, administered by the Lucie Foundation, are considered among the most prestigious in the field of photography. Schatz first established a following in the 1990s with two collections of underwater photography, Water Dance and Pool Light. He has since gone on to photograph dancers, athletes, circus performers and design and execute his own compositions. His work recently showed at the Brooklyn Museum as part of its "Who Shot Sports" exhibition. His work has been shown in numerous museums and is in numerous private collections. Schatz has published 26 books of his work.
