On Friday, June 7th, Maddox Gallery Los Angeles unveiled the latest works by world acclaimed fine art photographer David Yarrow including his stunning portrait of Pamela Anderson, recently shot on location in Provence, France. Yarrow wished to capture a timeless narrative, drawing from classic images of Brigitte Bardot for inspiration. Ensuring that the cast, styling and location collectively evoked a mood, shooting took place on a sloping street in Cassis – a beautiful village just east of Marseille.
“Like her iconic peer, Pamela is effortlessly sexy and glamorous. She plays to men and the camera equally well. The South of France defines Pamela now, just as it has with Bardot for decades and it is no surprise that she has made it her home.” – David Yarrow.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of this photograph benefited Pamela Anderson’s namesake foundation, and the evening played host to a silent auction including works by venerable artists such as Mila Alexander, Igor Dobrowolski, Emma Dunlavey and Raphael Mazzucco. The Pamela Anderson Foundation supports organizations and individuals that stand on the front lines in the protection of human, animal, and environmental rights. By funding the efforts of those who inform and defend the planet and all who live within it, the Pamela Anderson Foundation is an agent of change and an advocate for justice.
Event guests were treated to signature cocktails by Guillotine Vodka, and Mullen USA displayed their latest automobile, the Qiantu K50, electric high-performance sports car outside the gallery on Beverly Blvd. for all to see. Notable event attendees included: Pamela Anderson, actors Dylan McDermott, Pablo Schreiber and Angie Everhart, music executive Damon “Dame” Dash and gallery owner Petra Ecclestone. The David Yarrow photography exhibit runs through June 25th at Maddox Gallery Los Angeles.
