100 Jahre Modefotografie von Man Ray bis Mario Testino
Seductive, provocative, commonplace, eccentric and above all powerful – for some time now fashion photography has no longer merely been contract work or aestheticising documentation. It has become a unique opportunity for experimentation, between commerce and creativity, mainstream and subculture, industry and art.
The curator Nathalie Herschdorfer drew on this substantial, historical stock and put together the essence of 100 years of fashion photography. The exhibition includes more than 150 prints as well as original magazines that have never been exhibited before. A catalogue will be published by Prestel to accompany the exhibition.
