Description

Ten years after the exhibition The Air Is on Fire, which unveiled David Lynch’s photographic and painting work, the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is publishing this book, which features more than 120 black-and-white and colour images of feminine nudes realized by the artist. These erotically charged photographs are close to abstraction, offering kaleidoscopic visions of the woman. They attest to David Lynch’s fascination with the infinite variety of the human body, while being in line with his cinematographic work.

‘I like to photograph naked women. The infinite variety of the human body is fascinating: it is amazing and magic to see how different women are’ David Lynch

Born in Montana in 1946, David Lynch spent his childhood drawing and painting. In 1965, he left to study at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, where he discovered a passion for moving images and made his first experimental short film. Throughout his life, David Lynch has never stopped painting, drawing, photographing and making animation films. He has even broadened the field of his artistic explorations to include musical composition and sonic art. He is internationally known for his iconic films Blue Velvet (1986), Lost Highway (1997) and Mulholland Drive (2001), and is unanimously acclaimed by critics for his cult series Twin Peaks (1990-1991) and Twin Peaks: The Return (2017). One of the world's most talented directors, David Lynch received in 2006 a Golden Lion for his entire career at the Venice Film Festival.
