In September, the Erarta Museum opens an exhibition of the master of the French photographic scene, Jean-Marie Perrier. The author of portraits of movie, music and fashion stars, Perrier worked for the most famous magazines and brands and created an impressive portrait gallery of celebrities of the 20th century.
In total, more than 50 works of the author will be presented at the Erarta Museum, many of which have become iconic images of the era. The exhibition will include photographs from different years, beginning with the first stages of Perrier’s career, when he worked in the popular French magazine Salut les Copains, dedicated to the musical youth culture of the 1960s. It was then that he filmed the legendary The Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
In the 1960s, Perrier met and photographed The Beatles several times and even created several covers for the band’s albums. Among them is the famous photograph that adorned the single Penny Lane / Strawberry Fields Forever.
A landmark cycle of work at the exhibition will be the series “World of Fashion Designers”, created in the 90s by order of ELLE magazine. It includes photographs of eminent fashion designers - Yves Saint Laurent, Jean-Paul Gaultier, John Galliano, Vivienne Westwood and Kenzo. These shots show Perier’s attention to detail. As if not a photographer, but a couturier, Jean-Marie painstakingly cuts out each image, creating an elaborate photographic collection.
In front of the Perrier lens, the stars of world cinema also posed. Among his works are portraits of Catherine Deneuve, Alain Delon, Jean Paul Belmondo, Benissio Del Toro, Sophia Loren, Monica Bellucci, Natalie Portman.
