The Fondation Pierre Bergé - Yves Saint Laurent will present an exhibition of photographs by Hedi Slimane entitled “Sonic”
Flash Back to Paris Fashion Week in late September...I had a lovely afternoon with Hedi Slimane black and white "Sonic" rock'n roll exhibition. It was a sunny day and since the exhibition was clean of white walls and monochromatic art... I just has to wear the most colorful dress I had.
Life is a party.
In this series Hedi captures the indie rock'n roll underground scenes of Los Angeles and London as well as iconic souls like Lou Reed which captures the vibes of the past; the originals the will live on to inspired the youth and so on.
I was not able to take many photos of the exhibition since it was an anti-camera exhibition.
The first part of the portraits are of the L.A. scene in which I saw a lot of familiar faces. :)
The Second half was London...other stills from the early 2000's back when tragic beauty Amy Winehouse was well alive and a lot and I mean a lot of images of rocker Pete Doherty and his apartment. It was an interesting study.
The last part of the exhibition is a video installation, juxtaposing the musical cycles of London (2003-2007) and California (2007-2014) in a documentary style of alternative portraits of two generations of performers and their fans.
