Wednesday evening, March 19, 2014, will see the New York Yacht Club‘s ‘Model Room’ in New York City host Stephens Waring Yacht Design and Langley Photography for a night of gorgeous images and spirited conversation.
Two talents combine:
Robert Stephens and Alison Langley come together to present stunning photography accompanied by insightful remarks describing the rise in trend towards modern yachts designed to embrace classic feel and style – a genre in yacht design affectionately called “Spirit of Tradition”.
“We’ll discuss what’s delightful about classic yachts, and why so many are determined to create their own modern classic: we’ll explore how what we’ve learned in the design of yachts over the years has influenced our clients and how we’ve come to marry retro design elements to modern performance,” notes Bob Stephens.
“My goal as a marine photographer is to capture the live expression of these yachts in their element–the power and performance under sail, and in some of the most beautiful sailing scenes in the world,” remarks Alison Langely.
Stephens Waring Design has remained at the forefront of developing the Spirit of Tradition concept since its inception in the early 1990’s. The studio is proud that their designs have been received with praise in the yachting community and well-represented in Alison’s shooting over the years. As SWYD display these creations in action, their case studies tell their story about collaborative relationships and show certain intricacies to this personalized process in creating a high-performance modern classic.
