Renowned for his imaginative style and captivating originality, photographer Philippe Shangti comes to London on 8th November for his first UK show, ‘Saint-Tropez To London’ at Imitate Modern.

Described by some as the modern day Guy Bourdin for his avant-garde and daring style, Philippe aims to break down taboos with his latest show and give us an insight as to what he would call his ‘crazy and sometimes disturbing world’.

Aimed to provoke unexpected emotion in it’s audience, ‘Saint-Tropez To London’ offers a fascinating visual cocktail of drugs, sex and death, immersed in provocative colour. The flawless detail and humorous undertones of the pieces makes Philippe’s work instantly recognisable and has made him a favourite amongst contemporary art collectors and celebrities alike - Eva Longoria and Tony Parker both own pieces by the rising artist. Originally from Toulouse, Philippe started photography at the age of fourteen. Now living in Saint-Tropez where he manages ‘The Quai’, creating one of the area’s most infamous evenings.

It’s first the shock of the photos, then the surprise of the controversial themes that captivates the eye. After the surprise, various details unveil themselves…his pieces are like watching a movie in seductive technicolour!
