Antoine Verglas is a New York City based French photographer. He is known for his intimate and personal approach to portrait photography. He has been published in and continues to shoot for the world’s top fashion and lifestyle magazines including Vogue, Esquire, GQ, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar.
Born in Paris, Antoine attended France’s prestigious E.S.C. business school. After graduating, he started his career on the other side of the camera, as the host of a popular French television show. Verglas transitioned into fashion photography and, in the late 80’s, published a series of intimate and personal black and white portraits of supermodels in their homes. These personal documentary style photographs of Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and others brought Verglas to the attention of the world of high fashion. His candid style is highly sought after, and his mastery of light in portraiture has become known as the ‘Verglas Signature.’
Inspired by Peter Lindbergh, Patrick Demarchelier and Herb Ritts, Verglas aims to capture ‘true, natural beauty’ using techniques that simultaneously reveal character and communicate mystery.
