Hedi Slimane continues his long-standing celebrity treatment for Saint Laurent with a newly released portrait of actor Joe Dallesandro, shot in Los Angeles earlier this month.
Hedi first met Joe after an introduction from director Gus Van Sant back in February 2009, when he photographed him for the first time in L.A as part of his Diary series. The edition, entitled Legends, featured the actor portrayed alongside British punk icon Johnny Rotten, which delved into two very different individuals that in more ways than one are pop culture legends.
