K+P : Le Manifeste Couleur
FRAC Reunion (Regional Contemporary Art Fund) present an exhibition dedicated to the work of Karine Chane Yin and Patrice Fuma Courtis : K+P : Le Manifeste Couleur. A 20 years retrospective from the very beginning of SPOON Magazine in 1996 until now. 20 years of collaboration between the photographer Patrice and stylist Karine. An occasion to see magazine’s pictures on a larger scale, organized in three thematic rooms. The two Art directors and founders of SPOON were invited in this institution in Reunion Island, to curate images from their fashion editorials.
K+P : Le Manifeste Couleur put together fashion photography from SPOON, and from other fashion magazines they initiated like Crème, ‘Twill or It’s Rouge, and collaborations with artists , photographers or publications.
Color is obviously the common thread, a subject that had always been important to them since their very beginnings, when black was ruling the 90’s and until today in SPOON New Edition. A touch of unbridled britishness from their elder collaborator : the photographer Steve Hiett, mixed with their colorful style most probably influenced by their tropical background. A very own special signature, that is visible on the pictures they curated, and exposed until the 26th of february.
What’s up Photo Doc
Since yesterday, and until Sunday, SPOON is partenering the international documentary photography fair : What’s up Photo Doc in Paris.
Formerly knew as “Photo Off” What’s Up Photo Doc, goal is to watch the State of the world like it really is. Strong positioning committed for three years on the photograph of the real, connected to the world, witness of the times.
“California Break” – 1972, is now being seen for the first time at Pyramid Galerie – Istanbul , in the collective exhibition “Totally Naked”.
‘She Knows Me Too Well’ Some early photographs
Galerie Madé in Paris presents “She knows me too well” a selection of early photographs from Steve Hiett
Although the style of this English photographer during the past three decades may be familiar, with colours that are often saturated and a slightly off-kilter composition, his work from the three previous decades. the 60s, 70s and 80s, remains largely unknown.
It is the iconic images from this period that the exhibition is attempting to lift from a body of work that is already full of images produced for the fashion media, mainly English and French, as well as for advertising.
30 rue Mazarine, 75006 Paris
We have no idea if this work will be featured in the exhibition, but this is the first ever fashion work from Steve that we published in 1999 in the magazine “Let Lite”.
At the time beeing Steve showed us the first pictures he did for Nova magazine in 1969. We decided to publish them including the High Speed Kodak film framing, on translucent paper and with a text from Steve telling us bits of the swinging London.
