Jeanloup Sieff had a huge popular appeal, in France and elsewhere. His black-and-white pictures, always exquisitely printed, became his trademark style. Dancers and nudes were two recurring themes in his works. A dandy all his life, early risers in Paris grew used to the longhaired and elegant man driving his stylish vintage English sports car for an early breakfast in the St Germain district.
This exhibition at Moderna Museet-Stockholm features a selection from Sieff's photographic oeuvre, with a special focus on his images portraying dance.
