André de Plessel
"Women are angels“
This creed runs through almost the entire life and work of André de Plessel. Very early on he saw women as "strong angels“ - they became the main subject of his photography and his most important companions. Whether in his commercial photo productions or in his art photography - the special relationship that André de Plessel creates through his lens with his »Angels« is a very personal one that is both respectful and provocative. The result is seductive images of great aesthetic power. He shows the majesty of female eroticism, bows to her beauty, inspires her to show deep secrets and unleash her feminine powers. We are magically kidnapped by him - not infrequently as voyeurs - into the world of his special, artistic eye.
The core of his work is the will to make people dream, so that what they dream can become truth.
He was never really at home in Germany as the son of an Italian and a French, and also the grandson of a Russian grandmother. His home was to be the photo sets of the whole world. That is why André de Plessel was drawn to the Miro School of Fine Arts in Barcelona after studying graphics and photography at the University of Frankfurt.
From there he went on to Ibiza, New York, Paris, London and for a long time in Milan in almost all major editorial offices, such as Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Linea Uomo, Amica and in the Olympus of advertising photography, with campaigns for companies like Coca Cola, Clarins Paris, Nike, DKNY, etc.
André has been based for over 30 years in Miami, the Magic City, which is constantly changing. In this colourful world of beauty and uniquely lively light, André de Plessel finds the most inspiration to focus on his “angels” and to create new works.
With exhibitions in New York, Miami, Palm Beach (together with Albert Watson in the renowned Holden Luntz Gallery), London and Hamburg, André de Plessel has long been highly recognized by collectors in the US.
