Like Da Vinci’s chiaroscuro and Malevich’s square, Perry Ellis’ photograph builds upon the established artistic interrogation of light and dark. In this work, a dark figure looms large across a desolately white background. While the contrast is distinct, the rest of the image remains ambiguous, the identity of the figure unknown.

Perry Ellis (American, 1940-1986) cemented American fashion design alongside Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren. A sportswear designer at heart, he glorified the casual, clean-cut, collegiate look.
