This monograph on the renowned French photographer celebrates Jean-François Lepage’s thoroughly unconventional approach to fashion photography, as well his equally captivating drawings, and deconstructed images. Jean-François Lepage is a photographer whose working methods are closer to that of a painter.

His paradoxically alluring and disquieting photographs bare evidence to a process in which he physically cuts, draws, and works into their surface to intricately evolve and strongly deconstruct the original image. Working not only as a fashion photographer, but also as a visual artist, he has creatively merged the two worlds creating a beautiful, hitherto unpublished series of images.

Imbued with color, these photographs are at once dreamlike and disturbing, alienating and meditative, revealing the work of a celebrated artist who has never foundered from his quest to decontextualize fashion photography into something wholly original.
