The Agathe Gaillard Gallery presents FAM. This retrospective exhibition curated by Fabienne Martin founder of the FAM agency in 1977 , shows through iconic photographs, the soul of the FAM years, which have marked the history of the press, fashion and art images, by its singular aesthetic.
Established in 1977 and internationally recognized, FAM was the creative cradle of out-of-the-ordinary models and legendary photographers such as Martine Barrat, Guy Bourdin, Elliott Erwitt, Peter Lindbergh, Robert Mapplethorpe, Sarah Moon, Helmut Newton, Paolo Roversi, David Seidner, Jean-Loup Sieff, Paul Steinitz, Deborah Turbeville, Albert Watson, Wim Wenders …
“I created the agency FAM with the hope of offering an alternative to the image of the classic model, and to break with the myth of the woman whose only perfect plastic counts. Also, my reflection and my work pushed me to seek sources of inspiration for the photographers whose work reflected for me a singularity or a baroque sophistication. I was especially interested in staging fictional scenarios. It is the style and personality of these models that determined my choices, they gave the imprint for a new vision of femininity through a multitude of subtle portraits. “. Fabienne Martin
