HEAD ON PHOTO FESTIVAL: SPY/SPY
Presented by Head On Photo Festival
Spy/Spy is a cross-look at Cannes Film Festival 2015 & 2016. It covers the dark side of Cannes, the glamour, the secrets & the wannabes. Spy/Spy is a same-same but different approach, with beautiful portraits and intriguing images that look deeply into the dark side of the cinema world.
There is an intense dialogue between what we see in the media, the aspirations of the wannabes and the shy stars fighting to protect their privacy.
The series consists of mainly portraits but also includes street/candid photography shot along the Croisette (the well-known street beside the sea). Julien Mignot was working for Grazia, Fred Stucin for Liberation and both had to produce imagery for the publications they work with.
