A loyalist, Hedi Slimane has traditionally shown his photography only in Almine Rech Gallery in Paris and Brussels. But now he’s branching out — just a little.
Bowing in September (just before the spring collections), the Saint Laurent designer-photographer will present Sonic, an exhibition of his more significant rock portraits over the years — think Lou Reed, Amy Winehouse, and Keith Richards.
Hand-picked by himself, naturally, the images will go on display in the intimate Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent Foundation in Paris, culminating in a video installation juxtaposing the now-Angeleno’s London series (2003 – 2007) with his California series (2007 – present).
Sonic, September 18, 2014 – January 11, 2015, Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, 3 rue Léonce Reynaud, Paris
