  American fashion designer James Galanos became internationally acclaimed for his extensive use of hand beading and luxurious silk fabrics over full-loose dresses and chiffon coats. Galanos's dedicated clients included singer Diana Ross, actress Rosalind Russell, and former First Lady Nancy Reagan, among many others. Galanos officially retired from fashion in 1998 and turned his attention to his other passion - photography. Known for his superb workmanship, Galanos uses the same materials and tools to create his impeccable photographic images. These are primarily abstract compositions constructed with ribbons, various fabrics and colored papers. Photographed in evocative light, these images are genuinely original, refined, and wholly consistent with Galanos's world renowned aesthetic. In 2006 the Serge Sorokko Gallery published the first ever portfolio of photographs by James Galanos.
