Simon BAILLY c/o SEPIA lives in Lyon and illustrates for an equally multifaceted and illustrious clientele: international magazines, luxury brands, bands and many more.
His latest work was created for an interview with crime writer Wolfgang Schorlau for ZEIT Crime. The stories about private investigator Georg Dengler are bestsellers and have meanwhile been broadcast on TV in a ZDF series. Georg Dengler is a former agent of the German Federal criminal intelligence and security service BKA who went into business for himself as a P.I.. Fellow writers had, however, warned Schorlau that stories about private detectives, unlike their Anglo-Saxon counterparts, wouldn’t be quite as successful in Germany. But he had already written most of his first novel ‘The Blue List’ at the time – too late to change the concept again. Luckily so : Three successful novels about the barfly and blues fan Georg Dengler, operating his detective agency in Stuttgart’s Bohnenviertel district, were published by 2007.
Wolfgang Schorlau was born in 1951 in Idar-Oberstein as the son of a railway official. Following the untimely death of his father, his mother raised her two children alone at first. At the age of eleven, she sent Wolfgang to an orphanage of the German Federal Railway in Freiburg in the Breisgau region. He processed the experiences of his childhood later in his novel ‘Rebels’. In 2000, he changed his profession in his late forties so that he could dedicate his work to writing political crime stories. His books have since been published at Kiepenheuer & Witsch, the first of which in 1995.
We present you Simon’s photos for the books ‘The Blue List’, ‘Kreuzberg Blues’ and ‘The Protective Hand’.
