Photographer Antoine Verglas was born in Paris. He began his career on the other side of the camera, working as the host on a popular French television show after graduating from France’s prestigious E.S.C. school of Business. Verglas then had the idea that would be his entree to the fast paced world of fashion photography. It was then, in 1990 when Verglas moved to New York with his camera and his vision. Pluck and persistence paid off, with a documentary style photo series for French Elle which featured some of the top names in modeling. Shooting Stephanie Seymore, Linda Evangelista, Naomi, Claudia Shiffer and Cindy Crawford at home in very personal portraits just as they were reaching celebrity status was his big break, and indicative of the style which has become the Verglas signature. This intimate style of capturing the person behind the camera has led to the rapid pace of work Verglas now has shooting for the world’s top fashion magazines. His photographs have appeared in Elle, Esquire, GQ, Maxim, Sports Illustrated and Vogue.
