EXCLUSIVE TEASER: Philippe Shangti - Saint-Tropez to London

French photographer Philippe Shangti, renowned for his provocative, bold, colourful style, has a unique aesthetic which blends the over sexualisation of women with some pretty daring core elements - from drugs ('No Cocaine Here', 2012) and killer stilettos ('Big Shoes', 2010) to Minnie Mouse wearing a sex toy ('Minnie Is My Bitch', 2010) and other playful paraphernalia - his work is both baffling and brilliant all at once.

Described as a 'modern day Guy Bourdin' in reference to his avant-garde style, Shangti is now bringing us Brits an insight into his 'crazy and disturbing world' with a new exhibition of his images at Imitate Modern in London - a show which aims to break down taboos surrounding drugs, sex and death, and provoke unexpected emotion in its audience, all with the help of his signature humourous undertones.

‘Saint-Tropez To London’ marks Shangti's first UK show, and will include some of his most iconic works - so expect your eyes to be shocked, surprised and seduced!
