PARIS: Jean-Paul Goude - Goudemalion exhibition.

Goudemalion exhibition. Jean-Paul Goude’s imagination was equally fertile in the presence of a number of fascinating women whose image he magnified by means of what he referred to as the “French correction”, a method of stylizing and transforming bodies, foreshadowing many of today’s computer techniques. By disguising, transforming and restructuring, cutting up an increasing number of ektachromes, he brought to life a succession of fabulous creatures, figures from his own personal mythology.  Grace Jones (above), for who he produced both images and shows, is undoubtedly the most famous of these icons.
