On the fortieth anniversary of Pierre Commoy and Gilles Blanchard's romantic union, this volume traces four decades of artistic collaboration between the photographer and painter known as Pierre et Gilles. This year-by-year retrospective of their vast oeuvre, accompanied by an incisive essay by art critic Eric Troncy, showcases the genesis and development of their sublime, audacious, and explicitly confected fusion of photography and painting. Highly sophisticated and shamelessly sexy, their art-stylized, idealized painted photographs - synthesizes tropes drawn from celebrity and mainstream gay culture with timeless themes of religion, mythology, and beauty, and many works feature international stars including Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Dita Von Teese, Kylie Minogue, Karl Lagerfeld, Mick Jagger, and Iggy Pop.
