Canned Candies

A lovely exhibition of iconic orginal vintage photography by Jean Clemmer. Exploring fatasy, sensuality and haute couture in 1960s Paris.

Jean Clemmer (1926-2001) was a French painter, musician, and photographer who began taking photographs in 1962, following a Fine Arts degree in 1945. In 1962 Clemmer met both Salvador Dalí and fashion designer Paco Rabanne. He had first discovered the Surrealist movement by reading seminal publication Minotaure and fostered a close professional and personal relationship with Salvador Dalí. Living out the rest of the swinging sixties in Paris, Clemmer continued practicing as a photographer and artist until his death in 2001.

This exhibitions runs from 26 November - 18th December 2010.
