Photographer Garret Suhrie will be set to embark on an international career after he participates in a mentoring project with star photographer David LaChapelle. German luxury car brand Maybach is supporting this project. The first task on hand is a reinterpretation of the Exposure of Luxury.
Maybach's relationship with the US star photographer started a year ago with the artistic showcasing of Maybach luxury saloons, given the titles Exposure of Luxury and Berlin Stories. Selected guests at the Chesa Lumpaz can view these photos on display during the St. Moritz Art Masters.
Patrick Marinoff, Global Brand Manager Maybach, said that the Garret Suhri's nomination as the mentoring scheme's pro was unanimous. Marinoff said that everyone was impressed with his huge talent and his very personal pictorial language.
He said that it is because of those reasons that Maybach is delighted to be able to support him on a very successful career path.
Garret Suhrie will be going with LaChapelle to work until August 2011. Suhrie will also get access to contacts on the international art scene through the network of David LaChapelle and the Maybach Foundation.
Wilhelm & Karl Maybach Foundation Global Brand Manager Patrick Marinoff clarified that Garret Suhrie's nomination as the protégé of the mentoring scheme was a unanimous decision. Marinoff explained that Suhrie possesses great talent and "personal pictorial language", which basically gets him all the support they could offer without any doubts.
Foundation Executive Director Jutta Aldenhoff said that everyone who takes part in the mentoring project will play a vital role in supporting Suhrie. The foundation will manage and oversee the project. Together with David LaChapelle, Wilhelm & Karl Maybach Foundation will come up with an individual plan for the project's schedule and content throughout the year.
