Exhibitions / Marc Lagrange
Famous for shooting with large polaroids, the Belgian Photographer loves textures and a suggestive feel, moving away from the sharp and clinical edge of fashionable photography. Designing his own sets and getting the right props is something that LaGrange is passionate about. The same applies to his locations, which he carefully researches until they fit his requirements.
Much attention to detail is given to sourcing a specific piece of furniture or type of cutlery to be laid out on a table. His banquet scenes, which are striking and festive at the same time, illustrate his ability to enhance precision while creating mood and atmosphere.
LaGrange’s work has been praised by critics and collected worldwide. He has showcased his photographs through Solo Exhibitions, from Europe to the United States. His extra large Marc LaGrange show took place in Graz in 2012, occupying 3000 square meters.
In 2011, Maison LaGrange introduced more than 240 artworks to the public, many of them unseen. The retrospective lasted half a year. Several books have been published under his name, including Polarized by Ludion (2009), Marc LaGrange 20 by Ldo (2011), XXMLl The Book (2012) and Diamond & Pearls that has been launched in 2013 in 80 countries by international publisher house Teneues.
