Hedi Slimane is known just as much for his association with Saint Laurent as he is for his fascination with the music industry, and considers Pierre Bergé as one of his biggest creative supporters

Scheduled to run from September 18 through to January 11 2015, in collaboration with Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent Foundation, Hedi Slimane will exhibit a collection of self-shot photography that celebrates his accomplishments as a photographer rather than a fashion designer.

The exhibit, entitled 'Sonic', will feature black and white images of legends such as Keith Richards, Lou Reed, the late Amy Winehouse and Brian Wilson, with each portrait depicting aspects of the music moguls from a raw and original perspective, and will ultimately revel around the designers atmospheric captivation of the music industry.

A documentary video installation will also be showcased alongside the photographs, and will create a contrasting image of the rock scene in London from 2003 to 2007, as well as the Californian music evolution of today.
