We were invited to create a permanent photography installation in the recently opened Vincent Palumbo Salon in the heart of Westport, CT.
For the second time we teamed up with salon owner Vincent Palumbo to create an ambiance through Ben’s fine art portraits that engage the viewer in a feeling of connection. We’ve worked with Vincent for many years, exhibiting our “Moments of Grace” at his former salon, Peter Coppola Salon, also in Westport. Vincent’s newest project is a state of the art, luxury salon built entirely from raw space. The salon’s clean, minimal aesthetic is the perfect backdrop for Ben’s large, black-and-white portraits.
The photography exhibit consists of Ben’s signature portraits along with images of the salon’s stylists in action. To create the images for the exhibit we spent an afternoon photographing the artistry of the salon experience.
Here are some of the images on exhibit:
Marcy Larrick, the General Manager at Vincent Palumo Salon, says “The response to Ben’s work has been amazing. Our clients can really ‘see’ the work when they can make a connection to the subjects”
For those of you who can’t view them in person, here’s what’s on display at Vincent Palumbo Salon:
