Dmitri Kasterine has photographed numerous cultural and leading figures of the 20th century including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Johnny Cash, Roald Dahl, Mick Jagger, David Hockney, Rudolph Nureyev, Edward Albee and H.M. Queen Elizabeth II. His work was on display at the National Portrait Gallery in London during the winter 2010/11 and is part of their permanent collection. He had a long association with Stanley Kubrick taking stills on Dr Strangelove (1964), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) and A Clockwork Orange (1971). The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery has recently acquired six of his portraits.
The Golden Thread Gallery mission is connecting the human spirit through the arts and began presenting meaningful work in 2013. The Golden Thread Gallery exhibits professional and emerging artists from various backgrounds and welcomes all mediums, all cultures and religions. By displaying a collection of various perspectives on a common theme, we reveal how art can creatively illustrate the diversity of the human condition. Our name, The Golden Thread, represents the invisible, underlying connection that weaves together the spirit of humanity – through the arts. The Golden Gallery’s current exhibit, “Surface & Depth” opened on Sept. 13 and runs through Saturday, Nov. 1.
