The Egoist magazine
Last room of the exhibition, one devoted to the period of the Egoist magazine founded by Nicole Wisniak in Paris in the late 70s: the gallery of portraits published in large format and total creative freedom in this prestigious journal, we discovers a small series of three portraits of Isabelle Adjani Deauville made a series very “cinematic” which completes the proof hybridity Avedon’s work from the cinema, magazines, from books to contemporary art by breaking the distinctions between art and what is not supposed to be.
