Francois Meyer was awakened very early on to the appeal of contemporary art; his father was a great collector. Even as a child, Meyer would accompany his father to art galleries and auctions. Meyer began his photography career at world-renowned Swiss photographers Boissonas. Here, he developed a love of photography, portraiture in particular, and has, over the years, gone on to photograph some of the world's best-known and best loved artists. Included in this stunning book are portraits of Max Bill, Fernando Botero, Francesco Clemente, Sonia Delaunay, Helen Frankenthaler, April Gornik, David Hockney, JonOne, Wilfredo Lam, Roy Lichtenstein, Marilyn Minter, Beverley Pepper, Pierre & Giles, Kurt Sonderborg, Andy Warhol, and Yan Pei-Ming to name just a few. This book tells the story of the forty-year career of a passionate art collector and photographer.
