JOHN STEWART
ANECDOTES ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY


John Stewart will talk about his life as a photographer: born in London in 1919 and brought up in Paris, John Stewart came to photography in the early 1950s, after a chance meeting with Picasso in the French village of Vallauris. Stewart’s request to photograph the artist sitting in a field of tall grass was granted and a few days later, he received an invitation to photograph Matisse in Nice. This was the beginning of a stellar career that saw Stewart go to work in New York under the celebrated director of Harper’s Bazaar, Alexei Brodovitch. His work then began to appear regularly in Vogue, House & Garden and Elle and is now in museums and collections around the world.

JOHN STEWART
ADVENTURES OF A FOOTLOOSE PHOTOGRAPHER


The exhibition at Galerie Clairefontaine will be a retrospective of his works including a selection of his famous series of Muhammad Ali. The show will feature exceptional prints of flowers, portraits, still-lifes, draperies and entropies. As John Stewart describes it himself: "Come to the seventies, little by little I let go of art directors and copy writers, and soon rediscovered my early fascination for still-life. I often used a 19th century method of making photographic prints, known as Charcoal printing. Using pigments rather than silver salts, the technique allows for deep, powerful blacks and a kind of sensuality unknown in conventional printing."

Exhibition: 7 September – 15 October, 2016

WILLIAM KLEIN
AN INSIGHT INTO MY CAREER

For over six decades William Klein has pursued a creative life all his own. He has learned on the job with next to no formal training, making innovative and influential work in photography, painting, graphic design, writing, television and film. His sensibility is distinctive, while his achievements are unparalleled and unlikely to be matched. He began in the late 1940s with figurative and abstract canvases of the great graphic flair. He reinvented twosupposedly antagonistic fields : fashion photography and documentary photography. And for the screen he has made more than twenty groundbreaking documentaries, over two hundred commercials and a handful of wildly iconoclastic fiction films. (David Campany)

WILLIAM KLEIN
ÉCHANTILLONS


A selection of 38 images will be on display at Espace 2 of the gallery with a focus on fashion photography and of images shot in New York, Paris, Moscow, Rome and Tokyo. "As a New York-born resident of Paris he somehow created a highly productive kind of exile, pitched between two cultures, adhering to neither. The urge to see and engage with societies around the world has also kept him rootless. This limbo has been vital to his art but it has vexed critics and commentators. His audience is comprised of various pockets. Those who know Klein the photographer are rarely aware of his films and vice versa. Nevertheless the things he produced in his first decade as an artist contain the seeds." (David Campany)

ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION WITH
ANNE CLERGUE AND RENATE GRUBER


Anne Clergue is the daughter of Lucien Clergue. She is a curator of contemporary art and a gallery owner. Renate Gruber was the partner and wife of Professor Dr. L. Fritz Gruber since 1958. She was a considerable influence in the important "photokina" Cologne exhibition founded by Prof. Gruber in 1950. Together with him, she established the “Gruber Collection - Photography of the 20th century” in the Museum Ludwig in Cologne. Anne Clergue and Renate Gruber will discuss the position of photography NOW & THEN, based on their own experiences with Lucien Clergue and Karin Székessy, as well as many more exciting encounters with famous figures of the "photography-world".

LUCIEN CLERGUE & KARIN SZÉKESSY
NUDES AND NATURE


A selection of works by French Photographer Lucien Clergue and German Photographer Karin Székessy will be on display at the Galerie Beim Engel. Lucien Clergue, who died in 2014 at the age of 80, was one of the founders of the Rencontres d’Arles. Clergue’s work encloses landscapes, portraits (e.g. Picasso and Cocteau) and still-lifes. He is best known for his “Nus zébrés”. With the magic of her camera mastership, Karin Székessy, born in 1938, creates eroticisms that convey the pleasure she finds in beauty and its transformation into two dimensions. In her work, she emphasizes the perfection of the torso, the grace of the limbs and the harmony of the forms.

Exhibition: 9 September – 15 October, 2016
