PHOTO OP: Hermès will showcase the craftsmen behind its Kelly bags and silk scarves with an exhibition of photographs at the gallery located in its Madison Avenue flagship in New York City. The 33 images are culled from “La Maison,” an 11-volume compendium of behind-the-scenes photographs by Koto Bolofo, taken over seven years and published by Steidl in July. Hermès has dubbed 2011 the Year of the Contemporary Artisan and the exhibition, scheduled to run Sept. 14 to 30, is one of a series of events putting the spotlight on its in-house skills.
