Jeanloup Sieff

Jeanloup Sieff (November 30, 1933 / September 20, 2000) was a French photographer. . He is famous for his portraits of politicians, famous artists, landscapes, as well as for « his nudes and the use of wide-angle lens . He worked mainly in black and white and for  fashion. He was a charming man and he loved women as much as he loved the photography . He was unique and he had always his unique vision. It was so important to me to dedicate a post about this incredible man who is alive through his art.

One of his famous quotes:

« All aspects of photography interest me and I feel for the female body the same curiosity and the same love as for a landscape, a face or anything else which interests me. In any case, the nude is a form of landscape. There are no reasons for my photographs, nor any rules; all depends on the mood of the moment, on the mood of the model ».

« I am totally superficial, I know. But I believe superficiality can be very serious, a defense against the gravity of things, a manner of discretion ».
