Poolside gossip, Slim Aarons

Aarons’s work epitomises the Travel, Lifestyle and Glamour of the period’s wealthy and famous, and spirit of vacations. He started his work in California, after the second world war. He never felt the need to hire any stylists or makeup artists: all he used was the natural light. He built his career on the following saying: “to take pictures of attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places”.

Stalker III, Andreas Kock

This photo is part of a series of prints on the same theme, all taken in 2007. Initially those shots were supposed to be used for a fashion editorial. Kock is an artist known for its dramatical pictures, full of rich colors, energy and tension…much like a thriller.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the 1990s until today, the photographer Olaf Martens has produced photo’s report, editorials and fashion pictures for luxurious magazines. His favourite subject is the women: almost always uncovered, despite the erotic vision of the subject, the picture draws attention to the power and the charm of the feminity without restricting her to her body. His models are never objects, Olaf Martens tries to go beyond the society’s clichés.

Benjamin Béchet is a French committed documentary photographer (who studied history). He is behind an artistic work which while it could make you smile, is in fact never naïve but committed and deep. Those two pictures are from a a series called “I am Winnie l’Ourson”. A thinking on identity, the stigmatisation of the Other, that stage fictional characters and deep fears and contradictions. “A person is never what we saw of

him/her, but always something more complicated and moving, every identity is partial, we all are one, none and a

hundred thousand”.

Inspired by the Pop-art paintings, and artists such as Lichtenstein, R.H.Newton, David La Chapelle, Dweck, Haring…but also drawing her energy from the pin-ups illustrators, Cécile de Plaisance works mostly with Barbie dolls. In a society which norms are heavily controlled, and where the women are seen as objects of desire, she wants to goes beyond the “woman-object” myth, even if a lot of her artworks depict uncovered women. They are here to send a message of solidarity to all the women in the world, in order to defend the freedom of each (and especially the right to be uncovered or not…what matters is the choice of the affected woman).
