Paris, is your place when it comes to marvelous events and exhibitions to visit. So I went to Galerie Azzedine Alaïa that is located in Le Marais. On going is the exposition of Carla Sozzani’s personal collection and it really represents her love for art and photography. Over 48 years of her career in fashion industry, Carla Sozzani has collected numerous limited photos from acknowledged photographers such as Steven Meisel, Richard Avedon, Paulo Roversi, Helmut Newton and many more.
Carla Sozzani was the Editor-in-Chief of Italian Vogue for many years from the 1960s until she finally decided to ‘retire’ from the magazine in 1986. During her career, she worked with many talented (and now legendary) photographers all over the world. In 1990, she opened her own gallery, located at 10 Corso Como in Milan.
This exposition also shows different types of photographic styles from different eyes and perspectives of the image makers. You’ll see emotional portraits from Francessa Woodman, iconic photo of Marylin Monroe by Richard Avedon and Irving Penn’s photo series, mostly in black and white.
The space is very minimalist and easy to navigate, once you enter the gallery, you’ll be directed to the front desk where a booklet will be given for complete information on the image makers, icons’ names and year of creation.
The exposition will be open until 1st of January, so if you are interested in fashion and portrait photography, this is the perfect event for all of you.
Do you have any event recommendations? Or if you have visited, tell us what you think!
