Photographs by renowned fashion photographer Simon Procter are currently on display at Galerie Carré Doré until the end of this month. The ‘Modeland and Mr Lagerfeld’ exhibition gives a deeper insight into the artist’s longtime collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld.
Simon Procter’s approach to photography is similar to that of a painter, referencing the history of art while seizing the moment. Specializing in the fashion world, he had the opportunity to team up with Karl Lagerfeld and the fruit of their long collaboration now hangs on the walls of the Monegasque gallery for the public to enjoy.
Simon Procter is a British photographer who lives and works between Paris and New York. Kare Vasilieva, from the Kate Vass art gallery in Zurich, explained that the exhibition includes many photographs from the Chanel collections, particularly a large piece from a museum which was photographed eight months ago and recently joined the exhibition. It’s a piece about Chanel’s 2018 spring collection. The exhibition also includes a very special photograph which was ordered by the New York Times entitled ‘The Feast’. Many of the photographs were taken between 2010 and 2017 and are extracts from the fashion book ‘Modeland’.
Flavia Cannata, from Galerie Carré Doré Monte-Carlo, said that the gallery was specifically chosen for the exhibition. Galerie Carré Doré has recently turned towards fashion art and is perfectly suited to host the exhibition. The photographs are an hommage to the turbulent world of fashion and to Mr. Karl Lagerfeld. The exhibition is also about our constant search for new trends and new technologies.
Simon Procter’s exhibition runs until the 25th of May. Galerie Carré Doré will then prepare for its big summer event, in collaboration with the MARS Centre from Russia, featuring a unique virtual reality experience which will be offered to the public.
‘Modeland & Mr. Lagerfeld’ by Simon Procter, until 25 May at Galerie Carré Doré, 5 rue Princesse Caroline, Monaco.
