Cooperative of Photography

An Encounter, a Work


10 Corso Como New York, brings together the idea of culture and commerce. The space itself blends fashion, food, art, music, design and lifestyle. Currently the gallery, within 10 Corso Como, is exhibiting a series of photographs taken by the Swiss photographer: Jean Clemmer. The images depict the notorious Salvador Dali, in a collaboration with Jean, creating tableaux vivants (living pictures). Dali’s vision, combined with Jean’s photography is both surreal, mythological, and dream like in nature. In addition, the series includes behind the scenes photos of Jean and Dali working together on the film, “Le Divin Dali.” Unfortunately the film was never released, as it was destroyed in a fire shortly after production.
