SHOEBOX STUDIO by Stephane Coutelle Book Signing

reporter: Miguel Dominguez

Stephane Coutelle

On June 21st, at Clic Bookstore & Gallery, Stephane Coutelle was at hand to sign his latest book release Shoebox Studio, featuring haunting, plain portraits (no make-up, hairstyling or even fancy lighting) of achingly young, aspiring models upon their first arrival to Paris.

This book follows the previous publication of Me Myself and I, a self portrait photo book. Other photo projects include Insommies (2010 − 2012), The Corner (1998 − 2002), and Three Sisters (1989 − 1995.)

French photographer and painter, Stephane is renown for his glorious female portraits. He has very successfully combined Fine Art with a commercial career, focusing on Photograpy for the last ten years, which has stablished him as one of the Beauty and Fashion Industry’s leading photographers.
