It takes enviable skill and dedication to achieve mastery in the arts. Yet even more remarkable is the artist who widens his scope to venture beyond his already widely acclaimed signature style. Few would dare to even consider such a risk… However, in Senza Parole, Marc Lagrange is audacious enough to make that thrilling leap as he boldly showcases a broad array of distinctive approaches—everything from starkly straight nude studies—in the honorable tradition of Helmut Newton—to Lagrange’s more typically intricate and exotic compositions. The photographer’s devoted followers will still find the dream-like eroticism he is known for, yet, in this work, each photograph is one of a kind, with Lagrange’s hallmark of technical perfection. As one would expect from Lagrange, each tableau is carefully configured with not a single detail left to chance.
Based in Antwerp, Marc Lagrange has developed a reputation for his opulent and timeless settings—a world where sensuality and seduction both play key parts. It is desire rather than its fulfillment that fascinates Lagrange. Not surprisingly, his otherworldly images have met with critical acclaim, being collected and exhibited in all corners of the globe. Lagrange’s previous publications include teNeues’s highly successful, Diamonds and Pearls.
