In 1999, Babeth Djian — fashion editor and avant-garde stylist — founded Numéro, a Parisian magazine now famous for its unique and bold aesthetic combining fashion and contemporary art. From the first issue, then very regularly, Babeth gives Guido Mocafico carte blanche for the closing pages of the magazine. Free and suffering no diktat, the photographer takes the opportunity to create immutable and provocative still lifes the major genres
in photography such as architecture, landscape, or nude. This platform, a place of innovation and experimentation, allows him to give free rein to his imagination, to offer an offbeat, critical look at our contemporary world made of vanity.

In 2016, the box set Mocafico / Numéro gathered all the series from 1999 to 2016 in 6 volumes. Here is volume 7.

Italian still life photographer Guido Mocafico was born in Switzerland; he currently divides his time between his home in Switzerland and his studio in Paris.

Guido Mocafico has become recognized as a contemporary master of still life. His interest in this most classic of art forms started early whilst studying photography at Vevey School in Switzerland. He initially focused on commercial and advertising projects for brands such as Chanel, Clinique, Dior, Gucci, Armani and YSL. His images have been published in numerous magazines over the years including Vogue US, Vogue France, Harpers Bazaar, The Face, and Wallpaper and Numéro.

About more than twenty years ago he began to develop personal projects, separate from his commercial accomplishments; these resulted from his personal passions. He explored his chosen themes deeply, first with research, to gain an in-depth understanding of his subjects.

Subject topics are varied and copious: in architecture, with his series Brasilia/Beirut; Medusa, jellyfish; Serpens, snakes; Aranea, spiders; Guns and Roses; Movement, fine watches; Nature Morte, banquets and floral arrangements, an interpretation of Dutch Still Life, and most recently Blaschka — glass models, by the father and son duo Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka. His work has been exhibited internationally since 1999, including venues in London, Paris, Munich and Tokyo. Various books have been published comprising his personal projects: Venenum (2005), Medusa (2006); Serpens (2007); Movement (2008) and Stilleven (2012), published by Steidl.
