Visionaire 60: Religion – In Collaboration with Riccardo Tisci

Whenever Visionaire team up with a fashion house you know its going to be a good issue. For No. 60, Visionaire teamed up with Riccardo Tisci, creative director for Givenchy, to explore the theme of religion. The credits for the images read like a who’s who of the fashion and art worlds and includes such luminaries as Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Marina Abramovic, Carine Roitfeld, Douglas Gordon, Pedro Almodovar and Gareth Pugh to name but a few. The images, all black and white, are interspersed with eight gold pages which represent  his sisters and mother and a single black page which represents his father who died when Tisci was four. The book is bound in leather, with the title embossed on the front, and is housed in a plexiglass lined wooden box carved out of antique doors that mimic an altar piece. In a nice touch, it is also infused with a fragrance by Yann Vasnier which evokes the smell of an incense filled church. The edition is limited to 3000 copies and is sure to become highly collectible in the years to come.

John Stezaker – Whitechapel Gallery Artists Edition Print

John Stezaker has been shortlisted for the 2012 Deutsche Börse Prize for his exhibition at The Whitechapel Gallery in 2011. John Stezaker’s work uses found images to produce collages which are both witty and poignant. The Whitechapel Gallery is an excellent place to buy limited edition artists prints, and I bought the Stezaker print below there during the exhibition. It is now sold out but keep an eye out for future prints as his international recognition and popularity is increasing rapidly.  The Photographers’ Gallery will be exhibiting Stezaker’s work as part of the Deutsche Börse exhibition this summer in their new gallery in London.

John Stezaker is represented by The Approach Gallery in the UK.
