Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

About the Artist

Born in Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1946, Christian Coigny has for the past 30 years developed a career in traditional black and white photography in parallel to his work in publicity and fashion. Anchored in a classical education, his work is strongly influenced by American painters such as Edward Hopper, Georgia O?Keefe or Andrew Wyeth, who he discovered during his 5-year stay in San Francisco. Imbued with demure eroticism, his subjects are immersed in a silent environment carried by a sober yet intelligent composition; Volumes and natural light interact to commend the human body with a timeless sensuality.

Beyond the countless advertising campaigns to date (Bon Genie Grieder, Chopard, Hermès, Hublot, etc.), Coigny has more notably been commissionned by Vitra to portray 130 celebrities, from Charles Bukowski to Audrey Hepburn via Allan Ginsberg, Davids Hockney or Dizzy Gillepsie. His artistic practice has already been the focus of no less than six publications and his photographs are to be found in the most prestigious private collections, as well as in museums worldwide. The museum of Lausanne recently hosted a large retrospective exhibition, featuring 70 of his photographs.
