Rizzo Re­vealed

Where Paris - - Arts & Attractions -

It is a panorama of fine fash­ion pho­tog­ra­phy that is on dis­play at the Stu­dio Willy Rizzo where some 50 pho­to­graphs have been brought to­gether in a show en­ti­tled Willy Rizzo, Pure Fash­ion. The show, which un­der­scores the orig­i­nal­ity and rigour in the artist’s pho­to­graphs, brings to­gether pic­tures from 1947 to the near present. The great iconic shots are all there like Elsa Martinelli for Ital­ian Vogue in 1967, Stephanie Sey­mour with Azze­dine Alaïa in 2001 and the geo­met­ric fash­ions by Cour­règes circa 1965. These cel­e­brated pic­tures are jux­ta­posed with un­known pho­to­graphs that have never been shown to the pub­lic be­fore like the edi­to­rial team at Vogue or the great de­signer Jac­ques Fath at his home in Maisons-Laf­fitte. The show is an ode to fash­ion and the mas­ter pho­tog­ra­pher who knew how to cap­ture it for eter­nity. - P.V.
