Foto Friday!

What better way to start off foto friday than to showcase two of my favourite artists - Pierre et Gilles! 

I came across Pierre et Gilles whilst I was still studying photography and absolutely fell in love with their works.

Pierre et Giles is Pierre Commoy and Gilles Blanchard who are romantic and artistic partners who have been living and working together since 1976. Their works are full of homoeroticism, symbolism, mythological and religious iconography. Often their works feature perfect looking ardonis' and gorgeous beauties.

Everything that is perfect comes with a price. In this case, the amount of hardwork that is done by Pierre and Gilles. Each print is painstakingly retouched and hand-colored to highlight every detail in order to create their dreamscape of an enchanted world. Pierre et Gilles are definitely two of the most influential artists of our time.

Truly deserving of our awe and respect.
