PHOTO: Sacha photographe de mode
The Dutch Institute presents a restrospective of Sacha van Dorssen, a talented fashion photographer of the 70s and 80s, who arrived in Paris from her native Rotterdam in 1963, and never properly returned, after being snapped up by Peter Knapp, then AD at Elle magazine. She documented the beginnings of a whole generation of designers: agnès b., Jean Paul Gaultier, Kenzo, Issey Miyake, Claude Montana, Moschino, and houses, including Chanel, Dior, Christian Lacroix, Yves Saint Laurent or Ungaro. So the clothes, but also the models, including Laetitia Casta, Linda Evangelista, Inès de la Fressange and Isabella Rossellini. Her editorial work is presented alongside advertising campaigns and book projects. Also worth a look is a companion show of Sacha’s current work on at Galerie Sit Down in the Marais (until 19 March).
Until 20 March.
