• Lionel Koretzky


    Lionel Koretzky was born and raised outside Paris. He grew up drawing, sculpting and taking photographs of things he built. Fascinated by cars and speed from a very young age he started racing go-karts and cars before moving back to his creative world in 1996. A week before entering art school he met still-life photographer JJ Liegeois of who he became first assistant. He went on to assist Roger Turqueti and later Paul Goirand. In 2002, Lionel moved to New York as Nathaniel Goldberg’s 1st assistant. He traveled the world with Nathaniel, working lights on a bigger scale, incorporating locations and daylight in his own work.
    In late 2014, Lionel became Associate Editor of Lollipop Magazine, a life-style magazine covering the World Formula 1 Championship.
    Lionel is a regular contributor to Man of the World, Air France Magazine, Out Of Order and Lollipop. His work has been featured in major publications such as Numero, GQ, M Le Monde, Vogue, V and V-Man, among others.
    He has worked with numerous advertising clients such as Hermes, JM Weston, The Row, Louis Vuitton, Z Zegna, Aether and Samsung.
    Lionel Koretzky now divides his time between Paris and NYC.
