Marking the opening of Paris Photo, Anthony Vaccarello‘s Saint Laurent Rive Droite stores in Paris and LA are exhibiting work by Italian photographer Renato D’Agostin, in collaboration with Galerie Bigaignon.

Specifically, Vaccarello has chosen a 2015 series, which saw D’Agostin travel across the US, riding 7,439 miles East to West coast on a vintage BMW R100 motorbike. Capturing a portrait of the country along the way, D’Agostin would transform hotel rooms into dark rooms and develop his film in the sink.

Inside the Saint Laurent Rive Droite store, 34 luminous and contrasting images from this series are exhibited – three triptychs form the core of the exhibition as well as a series of diptychs – while an exclusive book ‘Renato D’Agostin’ SLRD edition will also be available instore and online.
