Go & Buy • Mysterious female nudes and atmospheric nightscapes - Stéphane Coutelle presents "Insomnies" exhibition in Paris and photo book published by Damiani

As part of Photography Month in Paris, Stephane Coutelle, director and beauty photographer, famed for his female portraits, presents his series INSOMNIES, created between 2009 and 2013. "Insomnies is a tale of the night and those timeless moments when you are but half awake and your mind is traveling without control. Across the pages are intimate portraits of women pieced together with night landscapes, creating a confrontation, the beginning of an untold story of the women's wanderings..." says the photographer. The results are imaginative, real but also dreamy photographs of women mixed with atmospheric nightscapes that remind us of the movies.

The fact that many of his images remind us of paintings may be linked to his past as a painter. 15 years ago, before devoting his skills to photography, he presented his large format women’s portraits in exhibitions at spaces including Pariser Hôtel de Ville (1994), Coprim Foundation (Femme du Temps Jamais, 1995) and Art & Patrimoine Gallery (Face B, 1998).

GoSee met Stéphane Coutelle at a private view and asked him how his beautiful project came about.

"I have always worked on personal projects beside my commercial work. 'Insomnies' came naturally, because I am travelling quite a lot I am often jet lagged, so insomniac. I love those moments during ...

Design • Slanted Magazine #24 – Istanbul, Release: October 2014

Istanbul – the city on the Bosphorus – is famous for its countless minarets, magnificent palaces, colorful markets and traders, seagulls and stray cats. Istanbul is the only metropolis in the world that unites two continents. Traditional crafts collide with a young and blossoming art and design scene, which is slowly changing the face and image of the city.

Slanted takes a close-up look at contemporary design work and all the tumultuous developments in this cultural melting pot city balanced between the Orient and the Occident. On their one-week-trip the Slanted team met 15 design studios and produced comprehensive studio portraits which provide a vivid and up-to-the-minute picture of the scene. The resulting video interviews have been enriched with video material from the Shutterstock collection. Thanks to Augmented Reality and the Junaio app, readers can easily watch embedded videos of the Istanbul turu on mobile devices. The issue is thematically complemented by illustrations, photography and fine art from contemporary culture.

The cover is dedicated to Metin Edremit, the designer of the original “Istanbul symbol” whose design won first place in a competition 1969. The “logo” symbolizes many things, such as the seven hills upon which Istanbul was built and the city skyline. With small, formal changes, it now ...
