SAINT LAURENT RIVE DROITE x SÉBASTIEN ZANELLA
The Saint Laurent Rive Droite stores welcome director, documentary filmmaker and photographer, Sébastien Zanella for an exhibition curated by Anthony Vaccarello in Paris and Los Angeles. Sébastien Zanella creates provocative films and images that explore freedom of expression and the human condition in the global culture of skateboarding, surfing, and the street. Zanella’s style is both haunting and captivating. His artistic approach to composition and use of natural ambient light results in truly narratives that leave a lasting impression on the viewer. His short films have featured some of the biggest names in skateboarding and surfing, including Erik Koston, Dane Reynolds, John John Florence, Eric Ellington, Dylan Rieder and Alex Knost.
Specially shot for Saint Laurent Rive Droite, a series of photographs will be on display in SLRD stores in Paris and Los Angeles. The exhibition is built around a dialogue between two worlds. An urban, masculine, young, protesting universe, in a brutalist architecture, in black & white. Then on the other hand a feminine universe, colored, in a natural environment, aquatic and centred around surfing. For this occasion, a book SLRD editions and 4 posters will be available in stores and on YSL.COM
