Jeanloup Sieff (1933-2000) was one of the most renowned fashion and portrait photographers of his time. He studied photography in Paris and then traveled around the world on behalf of the Magnum agency. Back in Paris, he photographed fashion, nudes and portraits and worked for major fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Glamor, Esquire and Twen. Sieff made his highly aesthetic poetic photographs in black and white, which emphasizes their timelessness. His works can be found in museum collections worldwide, including the Center Pompidou in Paris.
