Photographies de Fred Jagueneau curated by Nan Goldin

Past: April 25 → May 15, 2012

After studying photography and art, Fred Jagueneau has been an assistant to the most in demand fashion photographers, including Mario Testino, Paolo Roversi, Steven Meisel, and Annie Leibovitz. In parallel, from 1994, Jagueneau began working on his own Polaroid black and white photographs which led him to travel to Bolivia, Chile, Czech Republic, Ireland, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Bulgaria, Zanzibar, Cuba, and Burma. He participated with Nan Goldin in SCOPOPHILIA (love the look, pictures of paintings), exhibition at the Louvre Museum until 31 Jan 2011 in the framework of the “Carte Blanche” given to acclaimed French director Patrice Chéreau. This high profile teamwork kick started Goldin and Jaguenau professional and artistic bonding.

A tireless globetrotter, Jagueneau travels alone for months every year to a new country, from where he returns with Polaroids of stunning landscapes and portraits. Nan Goldin is not only eagerly supportive of his work but also offers her intrinsic and profound vision while digging into the essence of Jagueneau’s sensual, contemplative and otherworldly pictures. His work of black and white or color polaroid’s embodies the substance of his photographic journey around the world. Nan Goldin has chosen the Galerie Nikki Diana Marquardt, as the exclusive setting where she will curate in April 2012 a selection of Jagueneau’s recent works. A unique proposition, from the photographer who has been exploring bodies and souls for three decades, the exhibition will present 75 pictures of an editing in hundreds revealing an original and generous project and a young photographer whose mesmerizing clichés will have to be counted with…

Nan Goldin was born in 1953 in Washington, She lives and works between Paris, London and New York.
