Under the gaze of Karl
"I am fortunate to be able to devote my life to what interests me most: photography, fashion and books." Thus says Karl Lagerfeld who, if he is known worldwide for his high fashion creations, is perhaps less known for the photographs he has been taking for at least 25 years now. Yet his photographic work is consistent: fashion photography of course, but also landscapes, often seen from a very abstract viewpoint, epic series such as the ‘The Journey of Odysseus’ or ‘Daphnis and Chloe’ and portraits. And the compositions of this passionate artist show a keen eye and technique that is subject to all types of exploration. Daguerreotypes, platinotypes, Polaroids, digital prints or serigraphs area all part of the wide range of mediums explored by photographer Karl Lagerfeld.
Under the sign of Love!
