Many look to the Hamptons nightclub for pretty figures to watch -- but if you would like to get an intriguing look at fashion models without paying thousands to buy your way into the hotspot of the day, one only needs to visit the Vered Gallery of East Hampton from May 28 to June 20.

It’s an exhibition called "Couture Shock," a solo retrospective of the work of photographer Raul Higuera.

He's shot editorial pieces for magazines like Harper's Bazaar, Ocean Drive and Latin American Vogue, among others. At the centerpiece of his photos are women posing, but within Higuera's lens the subjects end up awash in Kodachrome-rich colors, surreal settings and swirling accoutrement. Many consider his work enticing and rich, and for the span of the exposition, you'll have a chance to decide for yourself.
