As an international ambassador of French culture, Sofitel is excited to launch the latest exhibition, “elles” in collaboration with world-famous French photographer Gilles Bensimon.
This initiative was born from a desire to celebrate women. Who better to celebrate women with Sofitel than Gilles Bensimon? “The photo selection created for this exhibition honors the remarkable women whom Bensimon has photographed throughout his 30-year career, revealing in the process his original and unique style, based on movement, sensuality and vitality.” – Dominique Colliat, Senior Vice-President, Sofitel Americas
Including Catherine Deneuve, to Audrey Hepburn, Charlize Theron, Cindy Crawford,or Beyoncé and many others, the exhibition highlights Gilles Bensimon’s most influential works never before displayed in the United States. “I like to take my pictures fast. Fly-on-the-wall! As if not working…” comments Gilles Bensimon who has dedicated most of his iconic “oeuvre” photographing exceptional women to reveal their natural grace, poetry and inner beauty. “Everything good in my life comes from women because I love them. I am a feminist!”
