Published by La Martinière in November 2019, the book Chaumet Behind the Scenes reveals for the first time the daily life and important events of a High Jewellery maison, as portrayed by the photographer Julien Falsimagne.
Unprecedented in the closed world of High Jewellery, Chaumet Behind the Scenes retraces a year in the life of a maison with over two centuries of history. Accorded unique access, the photographer Julien Falsimagne spent twelve months observing the inner workings of Chaumet and the candid results capture stolen moments of authentic emotion. From 12 Place Vendôme, the Maison’s beating heart, to China, Japan and the Middle East, from offices to boutiques to archives and exhibitions, the book pays tribute to the women and men who make Chaumet what it is today.
A photographer with a passion for portraiture and reportage, Julien Falsimagne has worked in various fields such as fashion, advertising and documentary, regularly collaborating with the press, luxury goods houses and publishers. He is also the author of the book Disconnecting People, published in 2016 by DuB Editions.
