I am Dandy

Exhibition Nov. 18–22
Posted by Gestalten—11/2013

The National Arts Club is going to host a week long exhibition showcasing portraits from I am Dandy. Photographer Rose Callahan and author Natty Adams will both be attending the opening reception and book signing on Monday, November 18 from 6–8 PM.

Rose Callahan is a photographer and filmmaker based in Brooklyn, New York. In 2008, she began The Dandy Portraits: The Lives of Exquisite Gentlemen Today as a personal project to tell the nuanced story of extreme masculine elegance alive today. Rose found that the dandies of today are not a cohesive subculture or creed; rather, each man is a fiercely independent arbiter of what it means to be a gentleman and to live with style.

Nathaniel "Natty" Adams is a New York-based writer and manager of the Against Nature menswear atelier. His NYU undergraduate thesis was on 20th Century Dandyism and, as a student at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, he wrote a book proposal on the history of Dandyism, for which he won the prestigious Lynton Fellowship. Adams used the grant money to travel through America, Europe, and Africa meeting and interviewing the best-dressed men in the world.

Prints from I am Dandy will be available for purchase during the exhibtion. The opening evening's special guest will be Mr. B the Gentleman Rhymer.

If you'd like to attend, please RSVP in advance via email.

The book documents the well-kept lives of 57 protagonists of contemporary dandyism with a keen, yet empathic eye.
