The artist

Partners both in work and in life, BJ and Richeille Formento have collaborated since 2009. After studying fine arts at the Academy of Arts University in San Francisco, BJ began his career in New York after assisting major photographers such as Richard Avedon, Mary Ellen Mark, and Annie Leibovitz. Richeille, who studied at the prestigious Central Saint Martin's College of Art worked until 2005 in the fashion industry as an artistic director and designer for top brands as well as independent labels. After three years living together, they decided to combine their talents. Their famous portraits of women, at the crossroads between fashion and visual creation, have already toured the globe. They continue to garner huge success, through their publication in such renowned and prestigious media as Wolf Magazine, Aesthetica or Vogue Italy, the magazine responsible for organising the New Exposure competition in which they finished finalists in 2012. The artistic duo was thus immediately propelled into the world of fashion, holding multiple international exhibitions in Paris, London, Berlin, Stuttgart, and D&uuml;sseldorf, as well as New York.  ...

FORMENTO+FORMENTO

About the artwork

In 2009, Formento+Formento took the decision to travel across the country in their Silver Air Stream. On a minimum budget, the couple decided to visit 25 states to photograph 50 women over a period of 5 months. Formento+Formento?s feminine figure is a glamorous stereotype. You can envisage her on Route 66, fleeing west. She seems vulnerable but determined. The photographs call forth the fantasies associated with the figure of a young girl in distress. With her suitcase in a service station, a motel or stopping in a disused building, there is a discrepancy between the physique and the beauty of the woman and the shabby decor that she crosses. The risks that she takes can be imagined and the strength of the despair which push her further still. She is never seen reaching her final destination. Her wandering will never come to an end.
