Fashion photography is not about clothes, or about people.
It creates fantasies. It requires imagination to inspire imagination in others.
My head was full of fantasies when I stepped out of the exhibition Papier Glacé at Palais Galliera Paris.
The exhibition consists of the work of many famous fashion photographers for Condé Nast from 1918 till now, together with fifteen garments from Palais Galliera on display.
There is a theatrical ambiance in the work of Cecil Beaton and Deborah Turbeville, surrealisme in the work of Guy Bourdin and some intense emotions in the portraits work of Irving Penn… Also many inspiring images from legendary photographers Frances McLaughlin-Gill, William Klein, Peter Lindberg…presented in white frames.
Each white frame is a slice of fantasy, or a pause from a beautiful movie.
I went there with my friend Anh Huy Pham. We felt so inspired that I asked him to take some pictures outside of the exhibition, where the stair and columns of the Palais creating a perfect ‘frame’.
Because we don’t bring any camera so all photos here were taken with my iphone.
The exhibition Papier Glacé is from 1st March to 25 May 2014 at
PALAIS GALLIERA, MUSÉE DE LA MODE.
10 avenue Pierre Ier de Serbie 75116 Paris.
