Hedi Slimane

May 12, 2009


Hedi slimane is a french fashion designer and photographer, majorly known for working as the designer for the clothing line Dior Homme for Christian Dior, and centenary exhibition for Louis Vuitton. He turned his hand to taking photographs for his lines aswell as for recent indie bands.  Having a background in clothing, furniture and store design he is noted for his stuctured form and this comes across vividly in his photography aswell .

Hedi places fashion photography within a precise framework, applying semiotic structure and rationale to the genre as a system of communication for symbols and signs present within any given image. He often exhibits his photography in extrodianry ways such as on layered pieces of glass, on large floor tables and in dissected frames.

His use of structure within his photography aswell as his presentation has inspired me to exhibit my work in more creative ways.
