Thomas Pawlowski, women in honor song

Thomas Pawlowski women in honor song

Through a beautiful book published by Glénat editions, Thomas Pawlowski pays tribute to the great singers of French song of yesterday and today. Different generations brought together through 27 portraits of artists with very varied styles but with “extraordinary talents”.

They are listed in alphabetical order of their first names. From A like Axelle Red – the soul sister – to Z like Zazie – the tightrope walker – via C like Catherine Ringer – the taulière – or M like Mylène Farmer – the immeasurable.

The words are strong: Patricia Kaas? A “National Treasure”. Mireille Mathieu ? The “Representative of the Nation”. Celine Dion ? “The greatest voice in the world”.

The photos are beautiful. We see them singing and dancing on stage, backstage after the concert, in the solitude of a dressing room or with a few artist friends, or shooting with the most extravagant costumes in front of the lens of the greatest photographers.

In texts and images and head full of songs, Thomas Pawlowski pays tribute to these women who by their voice, their talent and their charisma have accompanied and continue to accompany our joys and our sorrows and the great events of our lives.

“Singers, the French song for women” by Thomas pawlowski is published by Glénat editions.
