Biography

Jeanloup Sieff's career began with Magnum but quickly changed to fashion, landscapes and then portraits. He worked for Harper's Bazaar in New York in the early mid-60s before returning to Paris, where he worked for Vogue and became one of France's most celebrated photographers.

His collaboration with Yves Saint Laurent lasted over 20 years, taking the now infamous portrait of YSL nude for the first men's fragrance. Renowned for his black-and-white, glamorously lit but subtle photographs, nouvelle vague at a particular angle.

Jeanloup died in Paris in 2000 following a short illness, aged 66.
