Personal photographer of Dita von Teese, close friend of Jean Paul Gaultier, former artistic director of Crazy Horse show Ali Mahdavi collaborates with such magazines as Vanity Fair, Numéro and Dazed & Confused. He is famous for the unique sense of beauty which he skillfully recreates though the images using the light effects as a painter uses his color pallet.

 

Ali Mahdavi has been different from the very beginning. At the Beaux-Arts de Paris he used to sign his works « Ali-N », the surname which indeed conveyed the real character of this exceptional artist who doesn’t suit any conventional frameworks.

With the choking frankness the Iranian-born living legend reveals us the hypocrisy of fashion world, where all positive changes cover the commercial reasons which rule the Fashion and Art industry. Ali also shared how hard it is to live as gay with a rear alopecia disease and being rejected by the artistic and gay community.
