A new discovery for me at Art Basel -Vielmetter Los Angeles – new photographs by Genevieve Gaignard, entitled “Model Citizen”

A suite of new photographs by Genevieve Gaignard, entitled “Model Citizen,” originally commissioned by Vogue Italia on the occasion of their 2019 September issue.

The series depicts Gaignard in Gucci regalia, shot in Los Angeles, and exudes a cinematic atmosphere through which Gaignard inserts herself as an atypical model, rebelling against beauty standards. Extending Gaignard’s signature style of self-portraiture, the artist appears as various anonymous characters with visual details amplifying the intricate textures and colors of Gaignard’s distinct curated imagery.
