PAPIER GLACE AT PALAIS GALLIERA
This exhibition brings together ‘A Century of Fashion Photography’ from the Condé Nast archives in New York, Paris, Milan and London, presenting early work by those who went on to become the biggest names in the history of the genre. Organised by theme, it highlights the ties between these photographers who, from one glossy page to the next, have shaped the identity and history of Vogue. The dialogue flows between the elegant interiors of Baron de Meyer and Henry Clarke, the narrative staging of Cecil Beaton and Deborah Turbeville, the snaps of Norman Parkinson and William Klein, the visual experiments of Erwin Blumenfeld and Paolo Roversi, the surrealist games of Man Ray, John Rawlings and Guy Bourdin, the glorified bodies of Horst P. Horst, Herb Ritts and Albert Watson, and the portraits of models by Irving Penn, Peter Lindbergh and Corinne Day. Fifteen haute couture pieces from the collections of the Palais Galliera, 2 reading rooms and a number of screens where you can browse outstanding features from the Condé Nast group, plus contemporary films projected on a large screen, accompany the exhibition.
>Until 25 May. >10am-6pm (9pm Thu). Closed Mon. 8€/ 6€. >10 avenue Pierre Ier de Serbie, 16th. palaisgalliera.paris.fr/
