Selections of Pierre et Gilles's best marine-themed work

"Pierre et Gilles. Gilles et Pierre. Voici bientôt trente ans que le duo fonctionne. Pierre photographie, Gilles peint sur ces images. Il n’y a plus qu’à se laisser emporter dans un univers qui ne doit rien à l’outil informatique. Un monde onirique et kitsch. Un joli petit livre." - Arte News, Bruxelles

As sweet as raspberry ripple, as tempting as popcorn: welcome to the seductive photographs of Pierre et Gilles, the masters of glam, kitsch, nostalgia, and everything fabulous. Bizarre and full of obscure significance, glitter, flowers, and hearts, the portraits are reminiscent of stills from film melodramas.

This saccharine collection of kitsch encompasses selections of Pierre et Gilles’s most delectable works on the recurring theme of sailors and the sea.
