"POLAROIDS" exhibition - Paris : Sept 14 > Oct 20
Mosaics of polaroids were made in order to widen the angle, usually too limited by this small media format, and to check the light settings on the set. The result is exceptional and dynamic, and composition comes with a touch of unexpected photographic cubism.
The exhibition is made of vintage Polaroid compositions with that very particular Steve Hiett style : an immediately recognizable association of strong saturated colors with singular frame, that has been his trademark of over 40 years. After painting and graphism studies, a swinging London pop singer carreer, Steve Hiett started to work as a fashion photographer for Nova Magazine in the late sixties, and became quickly recognized, he worked notably for Vogue UK, Vogue France, Vogue Italia, Marie-Claire and SPOON…
Steve has been our cover photographer of all issues, no exceptions, for over 2 decades ! The diptych composition above was made before shooting the editorial bellow for SPOON VOL 6 (1999)
