Jean Pigozzi

Jean Pigozzi was born in Italy in 1952 and began photographing in the 1960s. An avid contemporary art lover and subsequent collector, he currently owns the largest collection of contemporary African art in the world. His own work was first exhibited in 1974 at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris. Last year, the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin exhibited his images under the title ”Pigozzi and the Paparazzi.”
