In homage to Karl Lagerfeld who passed away on Tuesday, Galerie Gmurzynska in Zurich will present a photography retrospective highlighting over 50 works by the legendary Chanel creative director. Gmurzynska was the first fine art institution to exhibit Lagerfeld’s artworks, heavily comprised of portraiture, still lifes, and street photography. The exhibited photos cover two decades of the multifaceted talent’s photographic work.

“Since our first exhibition in 1996, Karl has continuously and fearlessly explored the avant-garde of photographic processes; combining his compositional eye with his keen interest in the lost histories of the medium,” said the gallery. “His deep knowledge of art history has always been clearly illustrated in fresh ways throughout his oeuvre while creating his own unique processes that will continue their influence on photography and art in general.”

“Homage to Karl Lagerfeld, 30 Years of Photography” will be on view starting February 21. Head over to Galerie Gmurzynska’s website to learn more. In other photography exhibitions, rising artist Joshua Aronson recently launched a solo exhibition in Chicago.
