META Monaco is celebrating the work of acclaimed photographer Jean-Daniel Lorieux with an exhibition, entitled “Sunstroke”, dedicated to his photos and paintings.
Lorieux is a glamour photographer and man of elegance, and is acknowledged as one of the greatest French masters of fashion photography, in the lineage of artists such as Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin.
The 80-year-old has travelled in the world in pursuit of the sun, marking his style with photographs in very contrasting colours. He spends a lot of time in Monte Carlo.
META, at 39 avenue Princesse Grace, presents masterpieces from antiquity to contemporary artists of global importance. Highlighting pure aesthetic passion in the subtle relationship between artists and their audience, the gallery space has been designed to merge art and technology.
The exhibition opens to the public on December 8 and runs until February 2018.
