In the spirit of both an artist and a prayer book, La Fabrique des Idoles questions the role of
portrait in the representation of celebrities and particularly the develoment of the myth of the
popular icon. Renowned for their photographs of celebrities (Juliette Armanet, Etienne Daho,
Arielle Dombasle, Kylie Minogue, Stromae, Sylvie Vartan, etc.) and their presence in the nightlife
of the 1980's, Pierre et Gilles link up photography and musical icons. Through the book, we
discover the creative process of the idol, and how music and nightlife have influenced the public's
view on celebrities. Previously unseen photographs of their studio complete the over 80 portraits,
enabling us to better understand the inspirations and universe of Pierre et Gilles.

Rodrigo Gomez Rovira - Ultimo Sur


Xavier Barral 2019 ISBN 9782365112093 Acqn 30218
Hb 21x28cm 144pp 90ills £40
Text in French

Ultimo Sur takes the reader on a journey to the end of the world combining Rodrigo Gomez
Rovira's photographs with the ones of his grandfather, who moved to Tierra del Fuego in 1938
after Chile's great land reforms. Nearly forty years later, the next generation fled to France to
escape the dictatorship. In the mid-1990s, Rodrigo Gomez Rovira decided to return to Chile in
search of his roots and family history. Ultimo Sur is a hybrid book, bringing together a family
album created by his grandfather and the author's own photographs of the vast region of Tierra
del Fuego, a magnificent and isolated land, letting the imagination run wild. It reveals an arduous
agricultural world in which farmers led difficult lives. Portraits that bear witness to a forgotten time
are slipped between scenes of daily life and the wild imposing landscapes between the
mountains and the sea.
