Appreciate: François Marie Banier

My first introduction to artist/photographer/novelist/playwright/actor François Marie Banier was through the Diane von Furstenberg campaign he did in 2008. He photographed model Natalia Vodianova in black and white and then painted  and wrote all over her pictures with bright colored paints. After seeing these advertisements, I had to know more about the famed French photographer and it turns out there was a lot to learn. At a young age, he was very involved in the art and high society scene in France, and as he became more famous, expanded his friend circle to celebrities and other famous people around the world. I mean, the man is the godfather of Johnny Depp’s daughter, it doesn’t get any bigger than this. There is a little bit of controversy surrounding his relationships with the wealthy; some family members claim that he uses his relationships to get expensive gifts and money, but that putting that aside, it is hard to argue that the man is not talented. More of his works can be found here.
