Jean François Lepage, photographer, Paris
Jean François Lepage
initially started up in the world of photography as an advertising and fashion assistant in the early 80s. More familiar with Eugene Smith and Robert Franck than with fashion photographers, he nevertheless, quickly got caught up in this world, photographing still lives and portraits for magazines. He went on to collaborate with the magazine Jill, and then with Condé Nast Italy. In the 90s, he stopped working for the press in order to devote himself entirely to painting and drawing. In 2001, he began again his work as a fashion photographer with the influx of many new photography publications. Jean-François Lepage does fashion photography on the razor’s edge. His images, with their bare compositions - solitary figures, no accessories, immersed in an endless lunar landscape or a vast, almost empty white house - express a brand of minimalism seldom seen in fashion photography.

Patrick Scallon, communications director, Dries Van Noten, Paris

Born near an Irish mountain Patrick Scallon was very, very bad at school sports. His main (only) flashes of accomplishment at boarding school were winning the senior year essay competition and being Captain of the school debating team which reached the national quarter-finals. He graduated from University in Dublin and headed pretty quickly to Brussels where he had a place on the "Stage" (trainee) program of the European Commission after which he was due to return to Ireland to complete his training as a lawyer. He never went back. Scallon has lived as an ex-patriot ever since and currently calls Paris home. A few years of professional meandering ensued in Brussels which found him performing as ersatz Banker, Management Consultant and even Head Hunter. Some of these roles endured for a few years before they realised he was not for them. Before beginning to offer an English speaking helping hand at then Martin Margiela (now known as Maison Martin Margiela) in 1993 his preferred role in Brussels was that of copy-writer and occasional speechwriter. At Margiela that helping hand was initially requested and offered for 3 weeks which became 3 months and subsequently three and finally sixteen years. The evolution of his role began as press-sample box packer and faxer supremo and ended as Communications Director and eventually Artistic Director Communications. In 2008 he was happy and relieved to join Dries Van Noten as Communications Director. Today he commutes between Paris and Antwerp almost weekly. With Van Noten Scallon has been very happy to find that an independent passion for fashion and clothing still exists. He continues to treat exercise with profound suspicion, though a necessary evil these days. He drinks far too much coffee and/or wine, talks a lot and hates sun cream.
