As part of the Louis Vuitton Fashion Eye collection, photographer Quentin de Briey visits Bali, allowing chance to be his guide as he captures everyday life on the island of gods: the smiles of strangers, stalls selling durians, luxuriant vegetation and steeply terraced rice fields. It is at the margins of an enchanted vision and a tourist utopia that de Briey finds his place.
Based in Barcelona, Belgium-born Quentin de Briey divides his time between Paris and New York, working mainly in fashion and for luxury brands. His work has featured in publications including The Sunday Times Magazine and the various editions of Vogue. De Briey's hallmark is an instinctive photography with an ineffable natural charm.
Inspired by the House's travel heritage, the Louis Vuitton Fashion Eye collection evokes cities, regions or countries through the eyes of fashion photographers, from emerging talents to industry legends. Each title in the series features an extensive selection of large-format photographs, together with biographical information and an interview with the photographer or a critical essay. After Louis Vuitton City Guides and Travel Books, this third collection presents travel photography with a fashion perspective, as the chosen photographers all infuse their images of great cities, faraway places or dream destinations with their unique vision.
