Portfolio: the fascinating career of Alexander McQueen as seen by Ann Ray

 

For 13 years, the French photographer Ann Ray followed Alexander McQueen everywhere, from his private life and workshops to behind the scenes of his shows, right up to when he career was brutally ended when he took his own life in 2010. From this close relationship with the famous British designer, the artist has drawn a vast collection of black and white images which have been exhibited on numerous occasions, notably at the Rencontres d'Arles in 2018. This year, it’s in the city of St. Louis, in the middle of the USA, that this collaboration is set to be newly celebrated with an exhibition showing a selection of Ann Ray’s images as well as the pieces Alexander McQueen gave the photographer. You can see “Ann Ray & Lee McQueen” at the Barrett Barrera Projects, a new space in the Missouri city, until February 15th 2020.
