The great fashion and beauty photographer of the 70s and 80s - ELLE, COSMOPOLITAN, GLAMOUR, INSTYLE - who notably produced the Elite calendar in 1974, author of rare photographs of New York in the 70s, has been making portraits of women since the 2000s. He portrays women who are not models, strengthened by the fact that the most beautiful women do not always turn out to be "top models" as he likes to repeat. A form of challenge for him.
The series of this bulimic series of photos on the contents of garbage cans and the accumulation of consumer products are a return to Pop Art and the Andy Warhol years, but also a way of denouncing a process that saddens him.
His work on New Yorkers' garbage cans, with always this aesthetic research, is a work of art.
Today, Claude Guillaumin, knowing that man influences the city and that the city influences man, constantly walks the streets of different cities around the world to capture this interaction and thus take magnificent pictures of these large cities.
They take these pictures especially in New York, because he feels indebted to this megalopolis that welcomed him and taught him everything.
