Marc Lagrange is considered one of the most renowned photographers in Europe. Over the years, he has developed his own unique and recognisable style of capturing female beauty : razor sharp as well as cinematic. He brings sensual femininity to a higher level, with many of his pictures mirroring a clearly sexual vibe without being explicit. They all breathe an intrinsic peace. Much like the work of his other sources of inspiration : Helmut Newton and - especially - Peter Lindbergh. With one commission following another at top speed, Marc continues working at his personal work in his stylish studio – a former furniture factory in the city centre of Antwerp.
Last year, I was lucky enough to meet the man in person at his 20th anniversary exposition XXML in ‘Maison Lagrange’. I’ve got the book… and the autograph :)
