Collector and photographer Jean Pigozzi is renowned for his eclectic art collection and for his social circle, which includes film icons, directors, authors and artists, rock stars, fashion designers and titans of industry. Following on from his previous bestselling book ME+CO: The Selfies 1972-2016, his latest collection introduces us to the men and mentors who influenced his life. From his father Enrico Pigozzi - who passed away when Jean was just a teenager - to Italian entrepreneur Gianni Agnelli, from rockstars Mick Jagger and Bono to architect Ettore Sottsass to name just a few, Pigozzi travelled the world and met many of these men during gallery openings, parties, or dinner conversations. Through The 215 Most Important Men in my Life, we are reminded of the power of single individuals of the 20th and 21st centuries who became true icons in their fields.
