Fashion as Photograph: Viewing and Reviewing Images of Fashion (Paperback)

Fashion as Photograph: Viewing and Reviewing Images of Fashion Cover Image
By Eugenie Shinkle (Editor)


Despite its significance, visual and cultural studies have paid little attention to fashion photography as a media form. Fashion as Photograph brings together distinguished contributors from the UK, North America, Australia and Europe, to examine the production and consumption of fashion images from the points of view of industry and academia, the museum, the auction house, and the art gallery. Chapters identify and discuss key issues in recent fashion photography, examining its aesthetic, political, creative, and commercial dimensions.
