Visions of Deauville

agnès b, stylist and fashion designer, has built up an important collection of contemporary art, a whole section of which is devoted to photography. As a gallery owner, she inaugurated, in November 1984, La galerie du jour agnès b, which gives a large place to photography, before opening a second space a few years later in Tokyo.

AGNÈS B.'S DEAUVILLE, EXHIBITED AT LA CHATONNIÈRE:
Invited to Deauville in September 2012 for a Carte blanche at the 2012 American Film Festival agnès b. presented seven of her favorite American films there. During this immersion in Deauville, she was inspired to reinvent and design a new "Deauville" sailor's jacket using the five colors of the Deauville parasols (yellow, orange, red, green, blue) in alternating stripes. This marinière was made during the summer of 2015 in collaboration with Armor Lux.
In 2017, she returned to Deauville as associate artistic director of the Planche(s) Contact Festival and exhibited her photographs of Deauville, taken over the past ten years, with her Visions de Deauville series at La Chatonnière (an exhibition space set up in a 1920s house).

agnès b. about her exhibition Visions of Deauville:
"I love the Normandy coast, this softness, this light. Deauville is a mythical place full of stories! When I come there, I always find the stay too short so... I take pictures to keep images of it without taking myself for (a...e) photographer."
