Sir Paul Smith, with a wry grin in front of a bookshelf. Javier Bardem, utterly relaxed, in sneakers in a sunny field. Rasmus Kofoed, chef at Geranium in Copenhagen, one of the best restaurants in the world, atop an ivycovered wall. What all these portraits have in common— along with a sense of closeness and privacy—is a glass. For this is how GérardPhilippe Mabillard photographs his friends and acquain tances, all celebrities from the world of film, art, fashion, design, and culture.
Mabillard himself worked as a creative professional before taking the position of director of the Vin du Valais nonprofit association. For him, the glass, filled with wine or water, is the link between the people he portrays: a symbol of friendship and community.
Through his photography project, Mabillard is supporting the NGO Fondation Moi pour Toit in Colombia.
Gérard-Philippe Mabillard worked in watchmaking at the Swatch Group for the Calvin Klein brand before becoming director of the association Interprofession de la Vigne et du Vin du Valais in 2010. He also ran both a thermal bath center and a tourism region in his native canton of Valais, Switzerland. An economist with a specialization in marketing, he also has a passionate interest in cinema and photography. Through friends and acquaintances, he has maintained close contact with internationally renowned figures from the artistic world for several years now.
