Christian Coigny is a fashion photographer based near Lausanne who works mostly in black and white. From 1975 to 1985 he designed posters for Grieder Bon Génie Les Boutiques. The extensive campaign for the fashion company is characterized by stylized, staged photos in surreal and geometrically presented surroundings. In many posters, the model’s face remains hidden or is shown outside the picture frame. With his photos he creates a feeling for fascinating situations. Surrealistic, theatrical and daring with its layouts, Coigny’s photos are always fascinating for the company and invite the viewer to dream.
