He said that Lagerfeld’s unusual eye _ his gift for seeing things from unusual perspectives _ unified the otherwise disparate work and pointed to the 2007 series “Another Side of Versailles.”
In those grainy black and white images, France’s most famous chateau is pushed out of center stage and onto the margins of the frame. In one shot, a lichen-stained stone staircase dominates the frame, with the chateau’s roof just peeking over the top, while in another the castle is but a hazy reflection in a pond.
“Versailles is about 350 year old now and has this very fairy tale quality about it,” Marino said. “Karl’s photos have a sort of fuzzy, out-of-focus quality that kind of catches more of the feeling of the building than a standard photo of the grand chateau.”
“Parcours de travail” runs through Oct. 31 at the Maison Europeene de la Photographie.
