Description

HENRI CLARKE: MODELS


Organized by Paris Musées, from the collections of the Palais Galliera – Fashion Museum of Paris


Henry Clarke, Vogue’s main photographer in the 1950s and 1960s, had the greatest models of the era pose before his camera, including Bettina, Dorian Leigh, Anne Saint-Marie, Suzy Parker, Twiggy, Veruschka and Marisa Berenson. Their collaboration produced images that have become icons in the history of fashion photography. Beyond fashion images, these are portraits of women.


The exhibition, based on the archives held by the Palais Galliera, will present around one hundred fashion images, organised by series around the models who worked with Henry Clarke.


While women are at the centre of fashion iconography, there remains the question of their representation. Endlessly repeated, multiplied in mechanical poses, fragmented, shaped by makeup or retouching, objects of manipulation and desire, models’ bodies are created by and for fashion.


Renowned and recognised, the model gradually asserts her face. Playing with her image and her personality, sometimes revealing her very self, she is part of the photograph’s creation, part of a team.
