About this title


Ever since childhood, Stephane Marais has been fascinated by the beauty and glamour of photographs in fashion magazines. Today he ranks as one of the world's most famous make-up artists, having collaborated with the industry's most renowned photographers and fashion designers. Behind the scenes, however, Marais has been capturing his own personal vision of the beauty of the world's fashion models. Using a Polaroid camera that allows him to shoot faces at close range, Marais has taken photographs before shoots and during fashion show rehearsals for over 15 years. What originally began as a documentation of his make-up technique has long since turned into an independent and ongoing series of portraits. These spontaneous images present vulnerable moments that present Marais' unique vision and give the viewer an insight into the reality of modeling.

About the Author:

Stéphane Marais was born in Saint-Malo, France, in 1960, but grew up in Cameroon. He studied economics in France, but in 1981 he abandoned the subject to begin training as a make-up artist. He has received numerous awards internationally for his work.
