Young Spanish artist Coco Capitán (b. 1992) is best known for her witty photographs of her brothers and her handwritten, childlike notes. Right after finishing her studies at the London Royal college, she was already blessed with the opportunity to work closely with Maison Margiela, Paco Rabanne, and Gucci. For the latter fashion brand, Capitán created poems and aphorisms that were placed on t-shirts, bags, scarfs and scribbled on walls across New York and Milan.
Apart from fashion editorials, the photographer also dedicates her time to personal projects. These can be seen in her newest book Busy Living. The publication is a comprehensive survey of Capitán's last six years of image making. It contains a kaleidoscope of styles ranging from commercial work and fine art photography to personal memoirs told through trips across America and China. Moreover, the book accompanies Coco Capitán’s first major museum exhibition which runs until the end of May at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris.
The exhibition of Busy Living runs from March 6 – May 25, 2019 at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris.
