About the Artist
Francis Giacobetti has enjoyed a long, distinguished and influential career, principally creating editorial images but also initiating independent projects, most notably his remarkable collaborative series of portraits of Francis Bacon. He has for some years been the principal photographer for Issey Miyake. Giacobetti was the creative force behind the French magazine Lui, launched in 1963. He brought an acute sensitivity to the nuances of light and colour to his fashion, portrait, and erotic subjects – and he successfully interwove these genres with great sophistication and a distinctive Gallic chic. Only recently has Giacobetti managed to retrieve his original transparencies from the archives of Luipublisher, enabling him at last, after several decades, to make available to collectors prints of his celebrated images for the magazine. The present print is unique in this large format and is number 4 from an edition limited to 7.
