The Selby is in Hennessy's place
Though more used to photographing people in their environments, Todd Selby was thrilled to be invited to Cognac to shoot photos of Hennessy's grape harvest in 2010. It was a logical extension of his successful "The Selby is In Your Place" series, which have been collected in a book published in 2010. About 50 of the photos from this encounter are displayed in the exhibition "The Selby is in Cognac" at Quais Hennessy in Cognac. One can see that the American photographer has captured the life and spirit of the Maison in this series of personal, evocative photographs. They feature not just the grape harvest but the emblematic people and cognac-making traditions of Hennessy. The exhibition will run through October 28, 2012.
