Peter Knapp my long time friend and mentor...Paris Photo 2018
Each year, Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme gives Carte Blanche to some of the most prominent international art galleries, in order to create a unique site-specific artinstallation within the hotel premises.
This Autumn, @parkhyattparis presents « Vive la Mode » - an exclusive exhibition of fashion-themed photographs from the Nicola Erni Collection, curated by Hamiltons’ gallery owner Tim Jefferies, on view 16 October 2018 - 6 January 2019.
The unique installation presents photographic works by the greatest modern and contemporary masters including Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, HelmutNewton, Herb Ritts, Nick Knight, Paolo Roversi, Mario Testino, Melvin Sokolsky, Frank Horvat, Peter Knapp, Emma Summerton, Harley Weir and Erik Madigan Heck.
The fashion themed photograph exhibition will be displayed in the hotel lobby, at La Cheminée as well as in the Couture Bar. It will provide the viewers with a window into fashion photography since the 50s. The exhibition will also also recapture the historical relationship the Palace has with Fashion, as the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme used to be the former headquarters of Maison Paquin, one of the French Couture gems at the beginning of the XXth century.
