Portraits de Villes
Four artists' photographic visions of Moscow, NYC, Beijing and Sarajevo
The show celebrates the launch of the third series of City Portraits by Parisian studio Be-Pôles, this year adding Moscow, NYC, Beijing and Sarajevo to the collection. Shot by contemporary fashion photographers Harry Gruyaert and Steve Hiett, Paris-based artist Artus de Lavilléon, and former Swedish fashion model Lina Scheynius respectively, the notebooks reflect the perspectives of a carefully selected group on the cities they discovered.
Originally created for the brand's own pleasure, Be-Pôles artistic director Clémentine Larroumet explains the City Portraits are "nothing more than the intuitive path of an artist in the city."
