SHOWstudio is pleased to release an interview with legendary photographer Jean-Paul Goude, the first video in a new series of interviews by Sofia Tchkonia.
In a project spanning several years, journalist Tchkonia interviewed inluential figures in 20th and 21st century art and culture. The intimate conversations with Pierre Bergé, Rick Owens, Serge Lutens and Michelle Lamy, to name a few, cover their eventful lives and careers as well as their thoughts about three big subjects - love, money and God. She invited SHOWstudio to edit and release these unmissable videos.
In the first installment of the Love, Money, God series, photographer Jean-Paul Goude talks about his early artistic influences, including his ballet teacher mother and the Museum of French Colonies, as well as his collaborative and romantic relationship with musician Grace Jones. He also adresses Tchkonia's more philosophical questions; on the subject of what happiness is to him, the image-maker answers 'having an idea.'
Watch the interview now and stay tuned for the next in our series with Yves Saint Laurent's model and muse Betty Catroux.
