GoSee Tip : Jessica Craig-Martin's show at Gallery 64bis, Paris

Until 11 December 2009, 64bis Gallery, Paris presents PRIVILEGE, the first French show of 22 motifs by photographer Jessica Craig-Martin. The images illuminate the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

Jessica, who began her career as a fashion photographer for various magazines, takes us on a very personal journey into the world of the American and international Jet Set.

One catches up with them at mundane cocktail receptions, charity events in New York and the Hamptons, or at a stopover at Cannes Film Festival.

Jessica manages to bridge the gap between gossip magazines and her more or less voluntary heroes, she draws the curtain and presents a world which is usually obscured by a tangled PR web and airbrushed motifs.

Jessica Craig-Martin is the daughter of artist Michael Craig-Martin, as a tutor his students have included Damien Hirst and Gary Hume. Thus the world which she points her camera at is not exactly unfamiliar.

Jessica studied Photography at New School/Parson in New York and The International Center for Photography, likewise in New York. Exhibitions of her work have already included the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid in 2002, amongst others.

Born in 1963, Jessica lives and mainly works in New York – provided there isn’t another Jet Set event beckoning. GoSee presents a selection of motifs, see the rest is in Paris !
