A collection of Hedi Slimane's photographs taken in France
between 2000 and 2009.
Hedi Slimane began taking photographs long before he started making clothes, as "Anthology of a Decade" reveals: "I've always taken pictures," he told former "Interview" magazine editor Ingrid Sischy, "almost like some people take notes or write down their thoughts."
This volume brings together black-and-white photographs taken in France between 2000 and 2009. It was during this decade that Slimane brought to men's fashion an androgynous rock verve that influenced couture worldwide. It includes photographs taken at White Stripes, Babyshambles, Franz Ferdinand, Beck, and David Bowie gigs, as well as still lifes and portraits of Gus Van Sant, Courtney Love, Pete Doherty, and models from casting sessions during Slimane's tenures at Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent.
