Around this time every year, Kate Moss’ photographs are all over the press. Most of them would show her in bohemian clothes holidaying in Saint Tropez or sailing on luxurious yachts in the Mediterranean dressed in impressive summer kaftan dresses and swim suits. However, last year the super model, who has become an icon of the fashion industry and the visual arts, was playing joyfully with her daughter Lila on the Greek island Hydra.
Lila Grace Moss Hack was born in 2002, the child of the long relationship Kate Moss had with publisher of Dazed and Confused magazine, Jefferson Hack. The young girl is absolutely familiar with photographers and won’t lose her spontaneity even for a moment. One can see that in some of the great photographs taken by Jurgen Teller, where Kate Moss plays joyfully with her young daughter in Hydra’s alleys.
These pictures are exhibited among others in Teller’s solo exhibition, which opened at Benaki Museum in collaboration with DESTE Foundation of Contemporary Art, in Athens on June 25, 2014 and will be on view through October 12, 2014. The exhibition is entitled Destefashioncollection : 1 to 8.
