The Karl Lagerfeld photography exhibition [Paris]

(Copyright Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel)
Last Friday, I went to see the Karl Lagerfeld exhibition entitled "Parcours de Travail" at La Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris. The talented Karl was not the only one showing in this museum - I especially enjoyed the intense portraits of Koos Breukel and the amazing self-portraits of Kimiko Yoshida (photos below respectively).

However, don't you hate when you are not allowed to take photos in exhibitions? I do. Nevertheless, the frustration became unbearable, and despite the staff repeatedly telling me not to take photos, I had to snap away a few things. Especially the photo below:  the reflection of the neon-like-Karl in his photography, matching perfectly the eye of the model...
I almost thought I was going to get kicked out of the museum twice, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Of course all photos in this post are taken with my compact camera for more discretion.

Finally just for fun, here is another version of Karl I played with because a. less quality is lost with black and white files on the Internet and b. I'm bored.
