'What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.'
– KARL LAGERFELD
Karl Lagerfeld whose multifaceted personality helped set the fashion industry’s standard for five decades, died Tuesday in Paris. He was 85. He had served as the creative director at Chanel for 36 years.
Since our first exhibition in 1996, Karl has continuously and fearlessly explored the avantgarde of photographic processes; combining his compositional eye with his keen interest in the lost histories of the medium. His deep knowledge of art history has always been clearly illustrated in fresh ways throughout his œuvre, while creating his own unique processes that will continue their influence on photography and art in general.
In homage to one of the great Renaissance people of our time and in remembrance of our collaboration over more than 20 years, we will mount a spontaneous photography retrospective opening February 21st at our Talstrasse 37 premises in Zurich. The exhibition will be accompanied by a gallery publication on Karl Lagerfeld.
