Jean-Baptiste Mondino

Paris-9E-Arrondissement, France

Jean-Baptiste Mondino (born Aubervilliers, France, 1949) is a French fashion photographer and music video director. He has directed music videos for Madonna, David Bowie, Sting, Chris Isaak, Björk, China Moses (Dee Dee Bridgewater's daughter) and Les Rita Mitsouko. Mondino has also photographed the covers and album packaging for the Marianne Faithfull albums "Before The Poison" (2005) and "Easy Come, Easy Go" (2008), and is artistic director for a DVD documentary included with a special edition of the latter album, directed by Ann Rohart.

The video for Don Henley's "The Boys of Summer," which Mondino directed, swept the MTV Video Music Awards in 1985, winning awards for "best video," "best direction," "best art direction" and "best cinematography." "The Boys of Summer" paired him with compatriot cinematographer Pascal Lebègue, with whom he would later shoot several other notable music videos in black and white, such as "Russians" for Sting and "Vogue" for Madonna.
