SUNSTROKE: JEAN DANIEL LORIEUX -- PHOTO. Gourcuff Gradenigo, Montreuil, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, Easthampton. 290 pp. with 209 ills. (172 col.). 31 x 25 cm. ISBN 9782353401963 Bilingual in English and French.
Publisher's description: To contemplate Jean Daniel Lorieux's work is to contemplate an entire era, which this emblematic photographer made sure to capture on film. Even though he started his career as a war reporter in Algeria, it now seems that Lorieux only has eyes for beauty. As a result, he travelled the world, pursuing sun and blue skies in order to give striking contrasts to his pictures. As a glamour photographer, but first and foremost, an artist, he collaborated with American Vogue, d'Officiel, and other great fashion magazines, as well as designers such as Christian Dior, Pierre Cardin, and Yves Saint Laurent. That being said, the focus of his camera was thus set on great men, like Nelson Mandela or fashion icons such as Brooke Shields, Claudia Schiffer or Sharon Stone, and even celebrities such as James Brown, Mick Jagger, Glenn Ford or David Lynch. This beautiful book of photographs showcases the glamour of this past decade. An exhibition on his life's work in the fashion industry (1970-2014) is ongoing in Brussels. Over 80 pictures and several paintings are on display, of celebrities from Frank Sinatra to Farah Fawcett and Brooke Shields.
