Tony HAGE

2016

MEP, Paris

The 80s marked a real turning point in the history of fashion. This decade saw the meteoric rise of young designers who, like Jean Paul Gaultier, were to revolutionise their profession, defying conventions. Fashion shows which had until then been private events became real performances; staging, lighting, music and choreography were all part of a flamboyant production. For the most seasoned, recognition came in 1983 when, for the first time, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York dedicated an exhibition to the work of a living designer: Yves Saint Laurent.

At the time, Tony Hage was a young enthusiastic photographer, capable of real acrobatic feats in order to capture candid shots of fashion and film stars. Since then, however, the intense media coverage – even “iconification” – of show business celebrities has created insurmountable barriers for freelance photographers. So, in addition to their documentary value, these images testify to a time gone-by in the history of press photography.
