TED PREUSS, photographer. A devotee of feminine beauty, Ted Preuss approaches the photographic study of the female body by emphasizing relaxed and self-possessed expression over abstract form or blatant sensuality. More than anything else, Preuss' subjects are like dancers caught in a moment lifted out of a fluid process that has absorbed all their energy in a quest for grace. A careful and accomplished printer, Preuss enhances the sense of admiration that he has for his subjects by presenting them in subtle amber-toned platinum-palladium images that augment complexity and individuality. Divided among miniatures that accentuate line and light, and larger impressions that bring out personality, the most successful of Preuss' studies maximize self-involvement, as when we see a model, shot from behind, leaning against the back of a draped chair with her hand resting on the back of her head.
