IMAGES AND FASHION AT LE PETIT PALAIS
PAR PATRICK DEMARCHELIER
From September 27TH,
4TH, 2009, Le Petit Palais,
Le Petit Palais, an artistic philosophy…
Petit Palais aesthetic philosophy combines three fundamental concepts: the aesthetic and intellectual experience, and the creative process. The latter creates a resonance between France’s traditional and contemporary art stimulating an exchange between both the artist and the public.
Each fall, Le Petit Palais hosts within its permanent collection, works by contempory artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, printmakers and video-artists) in order to advance its philosophy.
Diamonds, February 2000
The art of photography, considered until recently a lesser art, has finally been recognized as a fine art. Photography exhibitions are increasingly popular around the world. This holds even more truth in the world of fashion where the image is essential. France, a source of many talents, benefits from a unique aura in this craft.
« A photographer is someone fragile. We must constantly renew ourselves. For me, each project is a new challenge and whatever was done before is
forgotten ». Patrick Demarchelier
