Philippe Perrin, Hasselblad Latin America winner
By Nelly Richter
P&R Photo and Fashion Studio cordially invites you to celebrate and toast Philippe Perrin’s achievement. P&R Photo and Fashion Studio is the residence and studio of French photographer Philippe Perrin and Mexican fashion designer Laura Reyes. It is an attractive house with art in the front garden but what you may not imagine, when passing by, is that there is a whole world of art, photography and fashion inside.
Art: Achievement Toast: Philippe Perrin, Fine Art Photography, Within the San Antonio Artist Art Walk. Sun, Feb 26, 12-6pm. P&R Photo and Fashion Studio, 28 de Abril Norte 50, Colonia San Antonio. 415 154 72 65
It is a special time now for the studio since Philippe Perrin has just won the Hasselblad Latin America Photo competition award in the category of Fine Arts. The Hasselblad award is one of the most prestigious awards in the industry.
Fashion designer Laura Reyes specializes in costume design and one-of-a-kind clothing. Her unique designs and her experience in fine fabrics has made Reyes one of the most recognized designers in town and a ‘must’ when it comes to personalized clothing.
The studio also includes a show by two of Perrin and Reyes’ favorite artists, Gerardo Ruiz and María Ayala.
Gerardo Ruiz, a well-known eclectic artist and art teacher, is currently showing wire sculptures, done with grace and originality. He teaches painting, drawing etching and his mixed media workshop is highly recommended by art students in town.
Originally from Monterrey, María Ayala is also an eclectic artist using oils on canvas and pastel on paper. Her compositions have a touch that only Ayala can give them. She has a style that is all her own, and which you will recognize immediately when you see her work elsewhere.
P&R Photo and Fashion Studio opens Wednesday to Saturday, from 11am to 3pm or by appointment.
