Pierre & Gilles: Double Jeopardy, 1976-2007 by Paul Ardenne

Pierre & Gilles: Double Jeopardy, 1976-2007
Paul Ardenne

Pierre et Gilles create dreamy portraits that transport their subjects--as well as the viewers--into an alternate world where camp, pop, burlesque, religion, and eroticism mingle in perfect harmony. Creating the sets themselves, and with Pierre as photographer and Gilles as painter/elaborator, they create one-of-a-kind artworks of an unmistakably original style. A host of stars has passed before their lens, such as Iggy Pop, Madonna, Marc Almond, Nina Hagen, Catherine Deneuve, Laetitia Casta, Marilyn Manson, Mireille Mathieu... though many of their portraits also feature unknowns.
