Photographer Antoine Verglas was born in Paris and moved to New York in 1990.
Pluck and persistence paid off, with a documentary style photo series for French Elle which featured some of the top names in modeling.
Shooting Linda Evangelista, Claudia Shiffer, Stephanie Seymour, Estelle Lefébure Hallyday 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.
Antoine Verglas shares his life today between his studio in Manhattan and St Barth where he comes to work regularly. His attachment to the island dates from the early 90's when he meets his wife Christiane, to whom he owes a first child Julien born on the island and a shop Clic Gallery, for a few years in Gustavia.
