Lily Gavin : A Story with Vincent

Following her graduation from Bard College, Gavin found herself taking photographs at the Saint Rémy Asylum on the invitation of filmmaker Julian Schnabel who invited her to be the on-set stills and behind -the -scenes photographer for his new film At Eternity’s Gate about Van Gogh’s life in Arles. She documented the recreated world of Van Gogh every day for 8 weeks, shooting entirely in 35 mm and 120 mm film. While growing up in a digital world, Gavin’s inclination toward analogue photography started at a very young age.

The series of photographs taken during the film shoot of At Eternity’s Gate, is a result of Lily Gavin’s communion with Julian Schnabel’s vision of Van Gogh’s world.
