Denis Piel

Denis Piel is a French photographer and film-maker. He was born in France in 1944. He was raised in Australia and educated in the United States. He lives in the south-west of France. He worked as a fashion photographer in the 1980s; from 1979 he was under contract to Condé Nast. He stopped taking photographs in about 1990, and took up film-making, but without great success. A book of his photographs of women, with brief texts by him, Donna Karan and Polly Mellen, was published by Rizzoli in 2012.

Piel won the Leica Medal of Excellence for Commercial Photography in 1987. His work is held in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
