PAPIER GLACE - A CENTURY OF FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY AT CONDÉ NAST
The exhibition Papier glacé, un siècle de photographie de mode chez Condé Nast ("Coming into Fashion, a Century of Photography at Condé Nast" ) draws on the archives of Condé Nast New York, Paris, Milan and London, bringing together some 150 mostly original prints from leading fashion photographers from 1918 through to the present day. It takes place from March 1 to May 25, 2014 in Paris. The exhibition is an opportunity to rediscover the work of some ninety photographers at the dawn of their careers. 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 in the most natural of fashions 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.
