Praise for Hedi Slimane's Intermission, his first photo book: "If you thought Hedi Slimane's talents began and ended with tailoring, you are so wrong--his latest project, Intermission, shows off His Slimness's skills as a photographer." --Nylon Fresh from the latest season of menswear couture and his last book project, an imaginative artist's book that melded photographs of draped fabrics with impossible materials, here is Hedi Slimane's latest creation. Here is Berlin, heard not as the symphony of a large city but as a quiet, emotive ballad. Here is Berlin, as Hedi Slimane has captured it, photographing his surroundings, his friends and the ordinary places where unglamorous lives are led in the German capital. In intense photos that visualize a young generation's attitude toward life, Slimane reveals the shared desire for something other than feelings of security and prefabricated ideas.

About the author (2003)

Born in 1968 in Paris to an Italian dressmaker mother and a Tunisian accountant father, Hedi Slimane started making his own clothes at the age of 15, inspired by his mother. After a prestigious preparatory course in literature, followed by classes at the Ecole du Louvre art school, Slimane began his career as an assistant to menswear designer Jose Levy. In 1996, he joined the menswear design team at Yves Saint Laurent; in less than a year he had risen to the position of Artistic Director. With Tom Ford's resurrection of the House of Saint Laurent, he decided his creative freedom was being compromised, and left to take charge of design and image for Christian Dior's men's ready-to-wear and accessories lines.
