WOW! Loving these Simon de Pury prints available for sale online and on exhibition @colette.
Key figure in the international art scene, Simon de Pury still runs the big auction house Phillips de Pury & Cie. with panache but asserts himself as well as a photographer and archivist of his own life through a book and exposition, PurePuryGraphy from January 3rd to 29th.
The works shown at colette allow a unique angle on the life and travels of one of the more intriguing figures in contemporary culture today. The photographs are close-up shots of objects, materials, cities and landscapes that give an intimate glimpse of Simon de Pury’s perception and curiosity as seen through his very own eyes. His work is about reality and its different perceptions. ~colette
