This week VIDEO ART VIDEO (VAV) would like to continue our Music series with Parisian artist Stéphane Sednaoui, now based in New York, who has become one of the most internationally renowned photographers and directors since his introduction to the world of fashion by Jean-Paul Gaultier.
Time: 15:00 – 17:00 Thursday 16 Sept 2010
Location: Goethe Film Screening room
At age 21, Stéphane worked with photographer William Klein as the casting director and still photographer for his film La Mode, Mode d’emploi. By age 22 Stéphane Sednaoui was working full-time as a professional photographer. Since 1985 Stéphane has applied his unique photographic style to editorial fashion, celebrity portraiture, advertising print, and photojournalism, becoming one of most celebrated players. His first major video breakthrough was the MTV award winning music video Give it away for The Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1992, perhaps their most defining visual moment as a band. He has since gone on to create classic music videos for the likes of U2, REM, Neneh Cherry, Alanis Morrisette and Björk to name but a handful, each of which has brought an inspirational visual aesthetic to the song.
The screening is non-profit and aims for studies and research only.
Following the screening is Q&A session.
