Jean-Baptiste Mondino is one of the most influential image-makers of our times and among professional photographers the cult figure of young art directors and designers. The world of images we live in is largely pervaded by Mondino's photographs and video clips. His photographic and video works have created a furore worldwide, they have set the trend. First published in 1999 this book introduced the 54-year-old photographer-cum-art director from Paris to the limelight, where he had previously put the greatest starts in the rock and pop world. Mondino's creative genius presents Brain Ferry, Sting, David Bowie, Boy George, Madonna, Prince, Vanessa Paradis and many more. They entrust their image to his artistry of the highest caliber, to his unrivalled combination of outstanding qualities: technical perfection matched by aesthetic inventiveness, scintillating creativity, courage in the pursuit of constant innovation, and high sensivity for zeitgeist.
