Over the past few years Hedi Slimane’s ongoing design collaborations with musicians on their stage costumes has allowed him unfettered access around the stages of live concerts by David Bowie, The White Stripes, Beck, The Rolling Stones, Blondie, The Strokes, The Libertines … in Paris, London, Berlin, New York and LA. This has evolved into a personal photographic investigation of the mythology of the rock concert. In his pictures the stars of the shows are often conspicuously absent. It is about the creation of a rock personality, the silent ritual that goes on in the space he inhabits. His images capture “the sacred-almost sacrificial-space of the stage.” (Text: Steidl)
