This is the first time Lagerfeld has debuted his images in Paris. The German fashion designer is most notably known as the creative director of Chanel and Fendi.
The Paris-based designer's passion for photography began in 1987 when he started shooting for magazines and advertisements.
The exhibit is a collaboration of this work and his personal images that he shot during his travels.
The show is divided into two areas. The first theme showcases his professional photography that covers fashion, celebrity portraits, landscapes, and architecture.
The other area features his experimental photographic printing. These installations were quite innovative, unexpected, and fresh.
The exhibit feels like a personal journey into Lagerfeld's perspective on beauty and style. He is a true visionary who has captured the beauty of places and people. The exhibit is on view until October 31.
"Photography is part of my life. I no longer see life without its vision." --Karl Lagerfeld
