Description


Fashion photography captures our desires and fantasies about how we present ourselves to the world, while reflecting the changing values of our culture and society. Fashion Photography: The Story in 180 Pictures explores the profound influence that fashion photography has had on us over the past eight decades, presenting its evolution as a language, and a genre, while showcasing some of its most glamorous moments. Featuring work by every important fashion photographer of the past, alongside those shaping contemporary taste today--including Richard Avedon, Horst P. Horst, William Klein, Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, Steven Meisel, Corinne Day, and Juergen Teller, to name a few--fashion chronicler Eugenie Shinkle reveals illuminating moments in the story of fashion and photography, while sketching the bigger picture. She charts how fashion photography flourished with the rise of illustrated magazines, how influential art directors collaborated with photographers to shape epochs of style, and how generations of fashion photographers have built upon each other's ideas to expand this genre. An object of exquisite beauty in its own right, this book serves as an accessible primer to the story of fashion photography, for everyone engaged by this compelling subject.
