GUY LE BAUBE
Guy Le Baube is a celebrated fashion photographer who employs precision and wit to capture every nuance of the female form in his bold, sexy and spirited black-and-white photographs. After moving to New York from France in the 1970s, Le Baube worked as a commercial photographer for several editorial campaigns. His work received high acclaim and appeared in publications such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and Elle. After several years of shooting commercial work, Le Baube decided in the early 1990s to pursue his own artistic vision and create several series centered on the female nude.
Le Baube’s works are glamorous and erotic but also daring and surprising. His first series entitled “Behind the Scene” consisted of intimate portraits of leggy models, often only donning heels. He demonstrates his expertise in light, shadow, and the female form, and although his works have a playful element, they also convey an awareness of the darker side of fashion: the objectification of women. Le Baube addresses this issue with his “Readymade” series of oversized photographs of women in various set-ups, packed into crates and ready for shipping.
In March of 2019, Le Baube showed with Avant Gallery at the world-renowned Art Miami art fair.
