Fashion Photography Exhibition in Paris : a visual celebration

The Papier Glace exhibition is a celebratory event, highlighting the earliest works of 90 of the most notable fashion photographers. The first photographer to have photos published in a Conde Nast publication was Baron Adolf de Meyer. Photographers following him, included Edward Steichen, Horst P. Horst and Erwin Blumenfield. A host of other trailblazers continued paving the way with striking works. The 1950s ushered in photographers like David Bailey and Helmut Newton, who both made a huge impact on the world of fashion.

150 pieces, consisting mainly of prints, present a century of works, categorised by way of themes. Elegant interiors, surrealist games, visual experiments, glorified bodies and portraits, are subjects explored in the exhibition. Displays captivate, while provoking thought and images are juxtaposed with haute couture pieces, from various collections.

Electronic screens, displaying 50 pages of exceptional features, from Conde Nast publications, are also available to look through.
