During my holiday in Monte Carlo I managed to steal a few culture dedicated moments and have a look at some photographs of Serge Gainsbourg, part of the exposition “Serge Gainsbourg et caetera”.
The images are taken by Tony Frank and represent some of the most significant events of Gainsbourg’s vie héroique. They capture the intimate aspect of the artist’s life, as well as career: working in his studio or performing on scene, but also his wedding day and random snapshots with his wife and daughter. The exhibition also marks the biopic film, coming out this month Vie Héroique. All the things that cannot be captured on photo are present in the film, including the fresh on screen performance of Laetitia Casta as Bridgette Bardot.
Gainsbourg (Vie Héroique) is out now.
