Back Stage & Front Row is an all-access pass to the heady world of fashion and glamour, via the eyes of Gauthier Gallet. For almost 10 years, Gallet scanned behind-the-scenes and the front-rows at the ready-to-wear and couture shows in Paris, Milan, New York, and Tokyo, as well as some of the most star-laden parties of the past decade. Uncontrived, personal images, his photos show fabulous untouchables to be surprisingly human. These images are documents of our times, a compilationof encounters, and a continuous expression of Gallet's great talent. His uncalculated photographs reveal the strength of his subjects and capture, in a split-second, the "now," the moment. His unique working relationship with models, designers, and celebrities and their mutual trust is reflected in this collection of beautifully reproduced and timeless images. Back Stage & Front Row is at once a documentary of Gallet's work and a testimony to his great talent.
He was popular with everyone. He was right for the job because he could get closer to his subjects than other people.
