Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast

November 20, 2014 - February 15, 2015

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.


This exhibition has been organized by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, Minneapolis/Paris/Lausanne.

Presentation at the Norton is made possible in part by Saks Fifth Avenue Palm Beach and Dior.

With additional support from The Sydelle and Arthur I. Meyer Endowment Fund.
