Hudson, Derek (1953)

Brought up in the English countryside, Derek Hudson discovered photography in his parents’ Daily News. Settled in London, he becomes a key figure of the city’s historical press district, Fleet Street and he promptly depicts numerous personalities such as David Hockney, Patti Smith or Philippe Starck. Attentive to design and composition, the British photographer privileges original and meticulous settings that tell a lot about their sitters while often it is details that deliver the most moving and symbolic essences of individuals. The best illustrations? Pierre Soulages’ hands captured in 2006 that are sufficient to epitomize the painter’s power and artistry while Derek Hudson’s portrait of Yves Saint Laurent, in 1998, highlights the fragility of the fashion designer who seems crushed by the logo of his tantalizing brand.
