From June 6 to August 15, 2014, Cannes is the fashion capital for the 12th edition of the International Festival of Fashion Photography with Chico Bialas as guest of honor.
Hundred and fifty enlargements of photographs of fashion and beauty will be deployed from June 6 to August 15, 2014 in the city of Cannes on the Croisette, from the gardens of the Roseraie transformed for the occasion into open-air gallery. The exhibition will continue indoors at the Palm Beach Casino and the Espace Miramar, providing high visibility to a wider audience.
Chico Bialas guest of honor
Chico Bialas is a German fashion photographer who, since 1980, has photographed the most beautiful women in the world for magazines like Marie Claire, Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Grazzia, Donna, Amica…
Chico Bialas is known for its colorful, joyous and vibrant images. He advocates the use of a long focal length, which accentuates the very shallow depth of field and blurs backgrounds who become some kind of paintings. He was very inspired by Italian cinema for its fashion series in black and white, a mixture of eroticism and humor, with highly contrasting lights.
Photographer Chico Bialas has the art of telling funny, sensual and exotic stories with his lense, creating staged beautiful fashion photography. He paints the movement while capturing the perfect snapshot of a smile, a gesture, an expression such as the sublime picture of Monica Bellucci, with closed eyes in black dress and high heels on the beach in Nice.
Works of Art in large formats
A million visitors attended in 2013 the outer and inner journey of Festival Photo Mode to admire the large format exhibition of over one hundred and fifty works of influential or unknown fashion photographers. If May is the month of cinema in Cannes, June, July and August have adopted the Eighth art, which is just as attractive and fascinating. “There are eternal images,” said Jeanloup Sieff, “reaching the sublimation of the woman or beauty seized in privileged moments.” This is the invitation offered by the Festival.
The jury of the International Festival of Fashion Photography 2014, composed of personalities from the world of photography, will award three prizes for creativity, imagination, boldness of the composition and ability to inspire dream.
Will be awarded:
– The Grand Prix of Fashion Photography 2014
– Young Talent Award of Fashion Photography 2014
- The award for Beauty Photography 2014.
