Back in France in the 1990s after ten years in the USA, Périer was given carte blanche to shoot the major fashion designers of the time by ELLE magazine. Only a few prints from this body of work have been shown until now. This exhibition provides an opportunity to see the biggest names of fashion, designers and muses in a collection of surprising scenes that helped distinguish Perier's photographic work.
France , 1940 -
Jean-Marie Perier was born in Neuilly in 1940.
He began his career as Daniel Filipacchi’s assistant in 1956. Soon he was working for Jazz magazine, Paris-Match and Tele7Jours. He was drafted to serve in Algeria where he worked in the French Army’s Photographic Department.
From 1962 to 1974 he was the official photographer of ‘Les Copains’, the world leading magazine in music. Jean-Marie Périer’s fame goes back to his iconic photographs of The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, James Brown, to name but a few; images that indelibly captured the Pop and Rock scenes of the Sixties.
In 1990, Jean-Marie returned home to Paris having spent ten years in LA and NY directing commercials for such prominent clients as Coca-Cola, Canada Dry, Ford and Nestlé. It was photography that he wished to return; to once again feel the freedom and creativity he experienced during those Rock n’ Roll years. ELLE magazine gave him carte blanche to produce a series of images, entitled “The World of Fashion Designers” that presented the glamour and elegance of the fashion industry and its icons. The most famous fashion designers posed for him: Saint-Laurent, Armani, Tom Ford, Christian Lacroix, Gaultier, Alaïa…
His first major exhibition took place at the Paris Hotel de Ville in 2002.
Since then, he has had numerous solo exhibitions worldwide and his works have been acquired by significant public and private collections.
