For the past three decades Lepage has been creating a hybrid collection of images that lace together cinema, surrealism and haute-couture. This gorgeous book presents a selection of more than 100 of these images, representing a career that has continued to flourish. It features Lepage's work starting in the 1980s until today, charting his rejection of institutionalised glamour which resulted in genre-bending work with Vogue, GQ, Harper's Bazaar, Marie-Claire as well as the houses of Dior, Comme des Garcons, Jil Sander, and Nina Ricci. Dripping with colour, these photographs are at once dreamlike and disturbing, alienating and meditative, revealing the work of a celebrated artist who has never foundered from his quest to decontextualise fashion photography into something wholly original.
