FALL / WINTER 2021 CAMPAIGN
Joel Meyerowitz following Lucie and Luke Meier’s invitation to capture their Winter collections.
Meyerowitz draws geometries and sculpts volumes with light and colour. A feature that has made his photography iconic, whimsical, and new, since 1960’s New York. Here he plays with fashion, abstraction, lyrical chromatic accents, and bodies, blurring the boundaries between subjectivity and objectivity. His images seem to suggest that we are interconnected, interdependent, not just as humans, but with space, nature, and our shadows.
The references to the paintings of the Renaissance in Tuscany, where Meyerowitz lives and the images were taken, are clear. Tuscany is also where Lucie and Luke Meier both lived when they first met, and where some of the most refined pieces of their collections are handmade by artisans.
“It was a privilege to collaborate and share ideas with a legend of photography and a thinker like Joel.
He is a true innovator who has almost singlehandedly introduced colour into art photography. His sensitivity, sense of humor, and instinct for composition, turn reality into art”, say Lucie and Luke Meier.
This campaign is a new installment in an ongoing collaborative project for Jil Sander that Lucie and Luke have initiated, and will be published into a book.
