||Mark Shaw-Editioned Portrait of Coco Chanel #17, Paris, 1954
Coco Chanel in the living room of her Paris apartment as captured by Mark Shaw for LIFE Magazine in 1957.
Chanel was quoted at the time as saying that "Shaw had crept as close to her as anyone is likely to get with their LEICA on".
Shaw's informal, grainy, black and white images of Chanel were captured using an unobtrusive 35 mm camera and film processing methods that enabled him to eliminate all other photographic equipment. The result is a highly personal and intimate look into a day in the life of this iconic woman. These are limited edition prints (total of 30 available)
which we deal exclusively through our partnership with the Mark Shaw Photographic archives.
