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

Women take pride of place in the photographs of the Formento+Formento couple, who bring them into the limelight. The photographer duo reveals all of the ambiguity and sensuality of the female body, which is highlighted in sophisticated, carefully designed compositions. Their portraits of women represent various characters and travers various historical periods, inspired by the worlds of fashion and painting. Subjects as fundamental as religion, symbolism, or the nude are staged. Nonetheless, the extremely contemporary approach of these images renders the characters in the photographs more present than ever. While these photographs are evocative, they nonetheless allow a lot of room for the spectator's imagination.
