Pierre Debusschere is a young Belgian photographer and director. Head of the 254FOREST collective, he is represented by New York based Art + Commerce, one of the most prestigious agencies for photographers and directors in the world. He regularly collaborates with Raf Simons, Dazed&Confused, Vogue Homme Japan and Another Magazine, among others.
Invited to curate a photo exhibition at the 2013 Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography, Pierre Debusschere produced for the occasion a book entitled “I Know Simply That The Sky Will Last Longer Than I” (IKSTTSWLLTI) and an eponymous film.
The book, with conception and layout by Codefrisko, structurally corresponds to the unfolding of a film. Typographic interventions frame the flux of images; the handwritten text illustrate the intimate, human side while blurry texts suggest the transition effects that structure a film, the overall design reflecting interior and exterior masks, the principal theme of the project.
The book recalls elements from the installation at the Villa Noailles, for example the silver edge of the book directly references the mirror effects deployed in the exhibition.
