Icons Collection: Exhibition from April 4th to May 28th, 2017

Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris and Art photo Expo are pleased to present in the Art District gallery, Icons Collection, an exhibition proposing an exclusive selection of portraits of personalities by renowned photographers, whose images have forged the legend of the icons of our time.

Icons Collection goes through some of the major stages in the history of cinema, music, fashion and sport. These celebrities have made dreaming, dancing, crying generations and, at the turn of a film, a song or an unforgettable event, they are engraved in our memories. Some of these images are part of the common heritage of our culture.

This exhibition is also a tribute to the modern personalities browsing our news, more than ever starred thanks to the media or social networks. Some are genuine Timeless Icones, others are in spite of them, but their common point is to convey their own imagination and touch everyone.

The exhibition Icons Collection presents more than 60 photographs of different formats in limited editions and signed by twenty selected photographers. So, Marilyn Monroe meets Naomi Campbell, Mike Tyson defies Belmondo, Brigitte Bardot looks up and down Kate Moss or Ray Charles meets David Bowie.

With: Richard Aujard, Claude Azoulay, Arno Bani, Raymond Cauchetier, Michel Comte, John Dominis, Arthur Elgort, Tony Frank, Ron Gallela, Claude Gassian, François Gragnon, Michel Haddi, Markus Klinko, Thierry Le Goues, Philippe Robert, Luc Roux, Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello, Ellen Von Unwerth, Albert Watson.

ART PHOTO EXPO is an organization created in 2006. Its main objective is to promote fine art photography.
