A Glorious Galaxy
From Yves Saint Laurent, to Giorgio Armani, Vivienne Westwood and Karen Mulder, Jean-Marie Périer captured for eternity leading fashion designers and muses in photographs with highly original stagings that are the hallmark of his work. In an exhibition entitled Fashion Galaxy, some 30 of his photographs of the world of fashion, including many that have never been shown before, are on display at the Photo 12 Galerie. Périer’s career began in the 1950s in Paris where he worked for mainstream publications like Paris Match and Télé 7 Jours before becoming the photographer of the renowned French music magazine Salut les Copains, photographing major figures of the world of music. After more than a decade in the United States producing advertising films, he returned to France in 1990 to work for the magazine Elle. The exhibition presents iconic photographs with notably Karl Lagerfeld in front of his snow- covered château in Hamburg and Kenzo astride an elephant. - P.V.
