Tony Ward: Persistence of Seduction at Jed Williams Gallery

Opening Event: 5:00 to 7:00 pm, February 18, 2017


JED WILLIAMS GALLERY is proud and excited to announce its first showing of world-renowned erotic photographer TONY WARD.  JWG extends the spirit of Valentine’s Day by presenting a sexy, light-hearted visual romp through the work of one of the world’s preeminent photographers renowned for his explorations into EROTICA.  Ward will be exhibiting posters featuring photographs printed onto archival paper from high resolution digital files.  In a fresh new twist, JWG continues its adventurous forays into innovative curating by presenting its very first exhibit composed entirely of high quality photographic posters, created  by a master photographer.

Tony Ward’s photographs have been widely collected, exhibited and syndicated around the world. His unending quest for inspiring subjects and new projects compels him to divide his creative time between the diverse cosmopolitan centers of New York, Los Angeles, Miami, London, Paris, Hamburg/Berlin and his beloved Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Since opening Tony Ward Studio in 1984, Ward achieved global notoriety for his first published book on erotic photography, the controversial and highly praised OBSESSIONS. The monograph was followed by four more challenging and critically acclaimed volumes on photographic eroticism at the turn of the century. Scholars that specialize in the history and aesthetics of photography such as A.D. Coleman, Rick Wester and Reinhold Misselbeck have written illuminating essays that accompanied the artist’s published works.

Tony Ward has been teaching Photography courses at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design since the Fall of 2010. He currently offers an array of photo-centric works including image emblazoned clothing, original prints, private galleries for members only, and books by the artist.   In addition, via the artists web portal visitors can access galleries of leading artists who are affiliates of Tony Ward Studio by visiting:

Please join us for an opening reception February 18, 2017 from 5-7pm. Private press previews and artist studio visits are available prior to the opening by appointment only. Show runs from February 18-24 at Jed Williams Gallery,  615 Bainbridge St. Philadelphia.

Xuan Huang: Watch


Photography and Text by Xuan Huang, Copyright 2016




Besides checking time, the function of watches has expanded so widely that people obtain them for various reasons, and wearing them for different purposes.

A small collection of watches is common among many of us. It is certainly one of the most popular categories of luxury. It is an easy but powerful accessory to brighten up someone’s look efficiently.  The authentic pleasure a watch can offer is simple and straight forward – design on their appearance can be geometric, feeling strong and sharp, as well as smooth and elegant.

A sports watch is always a nice choice for casual outfits.  They look smart, fresh, and stable. Color is usually clean and neat, dials are bold and tightly fit with each other.  The interior of the dials looks deep and protective often conveying a sense of support and durability, which makes them indeed  good company for sports or trip activities

A more classic type is the metal watch. Shininess and the sense of quality is essential. This is where it fits the concept of luxuries the most – so formal and gorgeous that people believe only a few of them get the fortune to put them on their wrist. It is somehow a symbol of wealth as well as taste.

Comparatively, leather band watches are more about style. They have more dramatically different looks, and the contrast of materials on the same object makes them stand out, blending the form of formal and casual accessories. Dials are usually simple, colors, on the other hand, is one of the major components. Shape designing is another, which make them look modern and fashionable amongst other types.

Speaking of modern, digital watches plays an interesting role in the family. From plain digital presenting screen to the so called future watch, there are a mixture of forms of watches and technologies, with probably a closer relationship with smart phones.  The redefinition happens a lot on screen and their functionalities. It is hard to say that if that’s the true direction of watch design will follow in the future, but anyhow what doesn’t change much is that they are still considered cool to wear.
