Photographs from the Collection of Jean Pigozzi

Exhibition Website

Sep 6 2016 - Oct 30 2016

Johnny’s Pool includes a selection of works by art collector, philanthropist and photographer Jean “Johnny” Pigozzi, many of which are being shown for the first time from his personal archive. The famous “blue pool” at the Pigozzi family's Villa Dorane at Cap d'Antibes has seen actors, models, musicians and photographers since it was built in 1953. Color and black-and-white photographs of celebrities including Bono, Mick and Bianca Jagger, Elizabeth Taylor, Naomi Campbell, David Geffen, Jack Nicholson, Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone, Elle Macpherson, Helmut Newton and Julian Schnabel are brought to life with dramatic light and playful pool-toy props, celebrating the fun and whimsy of the glitterati.
