Galerie Gmurzynska is delighted to announce an extensive solo show of Jean Pigozzi’s photography to be presented for the first time in St. Moritz.

Jean “Johnny” Pigozzi took up his Leica already as a teenager before going to study in Harvard. He developed a distinctive and exclusive style, observing the festive everyday life around him. Being influenced by photographers such as Helmut Newton, Robert Frank or William Klein and befriended with pop-stars such as Andy Warhol or Mick Jagger, with whom he traveled the world extensively, Pigozzi established a very close and sincere way to portray his friends and companions. His photos are capturing the moment, when “the instant becomes eternal” as Bono writes in his foreword to Johnny Pigozzi’s Pool Party monograph.
