FASHION EYE GREECE by photographer François Halard, published by Éditions Louis Vuitton, 2020

LOUIS VUITTON on the book entitled FASHION EYE GREECE by photographer François Halard: “Famed for his photographs of interiors, François Halard sees himself as a soul hunter, capturing places which are alive and infused with the spirits of their owners. Here, he presents his very personal vision of Greece, and in particular, the island of Symi.

Classical sculptures, mineral structures and landscapes rising up from the earth fill the pages, tinted in blue tones, as if under the watchful eye of Halard’s mentor, Cy Twombly. Born in Paris to parents who were interior designers, François Halard initially made a name for himself in the world of fashion. Haute couture, ready-to-wear, still life vignettes, portraits – his photographs have been featured in magazines such as GQ, Vanity Fair, and French Vogue. But after his travels had taken him far and wide, and upon several inspirational encounters with artists, he moved away from fashion to hunt down fascinating homes and the souls of their owners. It is said that he has photographed more than 4,000 of them.

Inspired by the House's travel heritage, the Louis Vuitton Fashion Eye collection evokes cities, regions or countries through the eyes of fashion photographers, from emerging talents to industry legends. Each title in the series features an extensive selection of large-format photographs, together with biographical information and an interview with the photographer or a critical essay. After Louis Vuitton City Guides and Travel Books, this third collection presents travel photography with a fashion perspective, as the chosen photographers all infuse their images of great cities, faraway places or dream destinations with their unique vision.”
