Claude Gassian to Govinda Gallery

Govinda Gallery is pleased to present Anonymous, an exhibition of photographs by Claude Gassian. In the early 1970s, Gassian traded his guitar for a 35mm camera and began photographing his favorite musical artists. Over three decades later, he has developed one of the most significant visual archives documenting the icons of contemporary music.

More than simply portraits of well-known musicians and performers, Gassian’s photographs are part of his greater search for that beautiful moment beyond the immediately recognizable. Presented with the obvious celebrity of his subjects, Gassian persists until he catches that individual mood or private thought behind the very public personality. In the process, Gassian captures a feeling that eclipses the subject itself.

Many of Gassian’s images have been used as album covers, and have been published in numerous magazines and newspapers throughout the world. Currently, living and working in Paris, his work has been exhibited in museums and galleries in Europe. Featuring approximately fifty black and white and color photographs, Anonymous is his first exhibition in the United States.
