ASMP — American Society of Media Photographers

ASMP Member Denis Piel (b.1944, France), raised in Australia is an internationally acclaimed photographer, best known for his groundbreaking editorial work during fashion’s halcyon days of 1980s Vogue. He received the Leica Medal of Excellence for Commercial Photography in 1987.

One great gift offered as a photographer nurtured by Vogue was to stay at some of the most luxurious resorts and hotels in the world and eat in the very best restaurants. Piel’s beloved French grandparents had already cultivated his love of fine food, and he relished the experiences that his profession offered him.

Drawing upon a ten-year period, from 1985 to 1995, Piel presents a selection of photographs and transcribed audio recordings from PLATESCAPES alongside biographical photographs, personal writing, and recipes.
