Featured in Diego Uchitel’s latest Exhibition, Luz Y Sombra at Ralph Pucci International, Spring 2022. The inspiration was to create abstract sensual shapes through a variety of movements, where the light bends and bounces, both reflecting and refracting off the skin.
LUZ Y SOMBRA is a continuation of a series of work photographing dark skin, that Diego has been building on for over 20 years. In this series he plays with high contrast and use light to “paint” over the human body. The works border on abstract, nude silhouettes that are moody in their sensuality.

Ralph Pucci International is a luxury furniture, lighting and mannequin company headquartered in New York City. What began as a family business in the 1950s fabricating mannequins has grown to a gallery regarded as one of the best in the world, with outposts now in Miami and Los Angeles.
The furniture chapter began in 1989 because of a mannequin created by French interior designer Andrée Putman, who then urged Pucci to represent her furniture in the US. Today, Ralph Pucci collaborates with the world’s leading artists and designers, and is particularly drawn to pieces that highlight “the hand of the artist.”

Unless you're Ralph Pucci, who makes both like no one else in New York City. Pucci recently held an art and furniture show announcing the growth of his gallery showroom from two floors and 26,000 square feet to more than 30,000 square feet, now possibly the largest luxury furniture showroom in the world.

Downtown personalities Robin Byrd and East Village drag queen Joey Ariasmingled upstairs, checking out photographs by Marcus Leatherdale, Robert Mapplethorpe's old assistant.

Diego Uchitel has long revered the Polaroid for its dreamlike color and depth, and over the course of his 25-year career, he has continually sought to conjure these qualities in his fashion and celebrity photography. Uchitel used Polaroid film from 1982 to 2006, until the digital camera became an unavoidable replacement.
This volume is his loving homage to the medium that helped define his style--a selection of his favorite images, both commercial and personal, of models, fashion designers and celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Gabriel Byrne, Sofia Coppola, Diane von Furstenberg, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough of Proenza Schouler, Julianne Moore, and Sting, as well as landscape photographs.
Polaroids is awash with the tonal warmth and artifact feel of Polaroid film, from its splendid design to the photographs themselves, which are reproduced in their original (and current) condition, with traces of tape and little signs of wear and tear around their edges.
The book is bound in linen with a tip-on image. Each copy is personally signed by Diego Uchitel.
