Incorporating some 150 images created by 80 of the world’s most renowned fashion photographers, the exhibition showcases nearly 100 years of fashion imagery from the venerable publishing group’s titles, including Vogue, Glamour, and W. The exhibition features a selection of the work of Baron Adolph de Meyer, widely considered the first fashion photographer. In 1913, Condé Nast hired him in New York as a full-time photographer for Vogue, then Vanity Fair. Illustrating how fashion photography has evolved since de Meyer’s days, both in terms of subject matter and technique, the exhibition presents the work of Edward Steichen, Irving Penn, William Klein, Helmut Newton, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, and Miles Aldridge, among others.
The Fashion Panel scheduled for December 18 has been postponed. New date TBA.
This exhibition has been organized by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis/Paris/Lausanne.
