Matt Jones first photo exhibition

Matt Jones is presenting his first photo exhibition of from 22 June to 1 August.
Son of a famous father (Terry Jones, Artistic Director and founder of the magazine i-D), he had to face the challenge of making a name for himself, first name of course.
Photography took precedence over graphics for Matt, although one of the best graphics students of his school.
His first contribution was published in i-D magazine when he was 19: Damien Hirst… naked. Little over a year later, Matt shot his first cover for the magazine and has done nine others since then. He now lives the other side of the Pond and continues to flesh out his resume with work and covers for Life, Esquire, Elle and the New York Times Magazine, amongst others. The exhibition will show a selection of his personal work combined with a series of fashion shots and portraits of celebrities.

Hooked on colette

On 6 July, check out and listen to our new “Hooked on colette” best of compiled by Michel Gaubert and Marie Branellec. The most daring mixtures are the best when they are assayed, the symphonies of Beethoven and Britten stand next to Murcof electronica interpretation of Lully, and to the yet exclusive “Rondo Parisiano” of The String electro Baroque duet “Something A La Mode” accompanied through the voice of Karl Lagerfeld. Including also and among others the tracks of Krikor, Joakim, Tiga, The XX, Blank Dogs, Jeremy Jay, The Field… Urgent or smooth, hard or soft, the musics of Hooked on colette are stimulant products to be consumed without moderation – up to the addiction, without a prescription.
