, the new exhibition at the phd gallery (2300 Cherokee Street; 314-664-6644 or www.phdstl.com
), showcases two artists' differing approaches to black-and-white nude photography. On display are Jeff Palmer's highly sexualized male nudes, attuned to the shape and texture of the human body and featured in his book, Touch
. Joining them on the walls of the gallery (as well as in his own book, Black & White Nude Photography
) are Stan Trampe's classically styled female nudes in recognizable local settings; the Eads Bridge, Forest Park's Grand Basin and the City Museum take on new curves in Trampe's work. Sensitive Content
opens with a free public reception from 7 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 28, and both artists will be present to sign books. The show remains on display through Sunday, August 17, and gallery hours are noon to 4 p.m. Thursday through Sunday.
