The stunning work of legendary fashion photographer Jean-Daniel Lorieux have found their way to West Hollywood. Housed in the Leclaireur Gallery, the azure vision of “eternal optimist” Lorieux is available to be viewed at the international Art & Design Concept store’s Los Angeles location.

The now-82-year old photographer’s career has spanned several decades, espousing a sensual, joyous, and escapist creed. Lorieux rose to prominence during the 1970s, when his work covered the pages of iconic institutions such as Vogue Paris and L’Official.

Meryl Hadida-Shabani—daughter of Laclaireur founders Martine and Armand Hadida—carries on her parents’ legacy of celebrating an eye for beauty and recognizing lesser-known talent. Her Los Angeles iteration of the Leclaireur Paris flagship offers a unique viewing experience, assimilating works from contemporary sculptors, painters, furniture designers, photographers, and artists alike.

Lorieux’s stunning photographs can be viewed at Leclaireur Los Angeles’ otherworldly French château at 450 N Robertson Blvd, Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.
