Photographer, collector, philanthropist and businessman Jean Pigozzi (born 1952) has spent much of the past four decades compiling a frank and humorous taxonomy of the international glitterati with which he surrounds himself. Instead of keeping a written diary, Pigozzi elected to keep a visual journal of his friends, family and social antics, producing a brand of high-society portraiture that conveys his preference for celebrating life in-or next to-the limelight, seeking and embracing the company of the rich and famous rather than revealing celebrity secrets.

International man of business, traveller, and collector, Jean Pigozzi has spent the better part of the past three decades cultivating a frank and humorous taxonomy of the world around him. The camera is an extension and defining element of his identity wherever he goes, and with it Pigozzi creates an unusual brand of high-society portraiture that speaks to his penchant for celebrating life rather than exposing celebrity secrets. The fourth monograph of his work, Catalogue Déraisonné, is a thoughtfully irreverent review of his recent pho-to graphic finds. This compact volume resonates with a cast of eccentric, occasionally glamorous characters caught in the off-the-cuff arrangements of reportage. Constantly on the move, Pigozzi is marked by his dual status as insider and outsider, and he grants us an in-depth look at an inaccessible world. New. Hardcover, 29 x 23.5cm., illustrated. ISBN 9783869300344.
