“Kate Moss par les grands photographes” exhibition in Paris – Celebrating to most photographed woman on the planet.
Since she was first discovered at JFK Airport when she was 14 in 1988, Kate Moss has become one of the biggest names in the world of fashion and one of the most photographed people in the world.
Her quirky and ultra-photogenic looks has meant that she has inspired designers, photographers and artists from around the globe. In celebration of the supermodel’s 23 year career, the Galerie de I’Instant in Paris is holding an exhibition titled, “Kate Moss par les plus grands photographes”.
The show, which will run until September 14 2011, includes photographs of Miss Moss taken from some of the biggest and most influential contemporary artists and photographers, including Mary McCartney, Rankin, Corrine Day, Bert Stern and Bettina Rheims, the French artist and photographer who actually discovered Kate all those years ago.
Talking about the exhibition, a spokesperson from the Galerie de l’Instant commented:
“She has inspired the biggest photographers of every generation as well as contemporary artists including Lucian Freud, Marc Quinn, Sam Taylor Wood. It is therefore only fair that we dedicate an exhibition for her, as her work with photographers has been so rich and varied. This exhibition is homage, not only to her beauty, but also her intelligence.”
The supermodel, despite almost consistently being in the headlines, rarely gives formal interviews and her true identity remains fascinating and hidden.
The exhibition was due to take place in the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in November 2008 following the success of other fashion icon expositions that focused on the work seminal designers Madeleine Vionnet, Christian Lacroix and Balenciage. But unfortunately the Kate Moss show failed to go ahead due to funding problems.
