Of Fashion

The images in this portfolio show the best fashion work published over the past year by magazines from around the globe. The lasting impact of the work goes well beyond fashion, however. Photographers who through the years thought they were performing a humble, necessary task of showing what clothes existed for the needs of a given moment were involved in a much grander scheme, wrote the great Conde Nast editorial director Alexander Liberman in the 1979 tome Vogue Book of Fashion Photography....

Robert Beck

I earned my keep shooting football, hockey, basketball, and baseball at stadiums all over America. In 1986 Beck packed his Nikons and flew to Hawaii to cover the Ironman Triathlon. When he checked in, he found, to his amazement, that Sports Illustrated had hired him to shoot the race. His ability to deliver outstanding images under pressure was rewarded when one of his Ironman pictures ran as a double-page feature and eventually became one of Life Magazine's...

The Celebrated Celebrity Stylist

In this era of tabloid magazines, where every moment of a star's life is a potential photo op, a new personality has gained unprecedented power the celebrity stylist. Stars are a pretty insecure lot, says Renata Espinosa, New York editor at Fashion Wire Daily. Because they're photographed more now than ever before, they feel they need the help of a stylist to ensure they're not on anyone's 'worst dressed' list. The stylist's role has always been important a trusted expert who reassures the star and helps designers and photographers conceive and achieve their concepts. But as the demand for images of celebrities being themselves has increased, so too has the stylist's influence. Robert Verdi, personal stylist to Eva Longoria Parker, has a show on the Style Network called Fashion Police, where celebs are critiqued on their looks. Magazine-edi-tor-cum-stylist Katie Grand has such close relationships with designers that she has consulted on campaigns and runway shows for everyone from...

History Of Fashion Imagery By Jeanjacques Naudet

Guy Bourdin 1975

Fashion photographers are tastemakers and workhorses, artists and salesmen. Their imagery reflects the culture they work in, but there is no denying their influence in shaping culture as well. When the first illustrated fashion magazines emerged in the 1890s, the ideals of fashion rested squarely with an aristocracy of style. In a large sense, the beginning of fashion photography and its profound cultural impact can be traced back to the 1920s, when a pioneering The 1940s brought war and the...

Why We Love It What struck us immediately about Maciek Kobielski's simple but beautiful images for A4 were the tongue-in-cheek references to other photographers. In this shot, a classic Vogue Italia becomes the model's shirt, her face mirrored by those on the cover. In another, a woman nuzzles up to a photobook by Helmut Newton, the flat flash of the image playing off the high-contrast black-and-white. m.j.

His idea was to photograph a group of beauties clad in chic clothes on a beach in Mon-tauk, New York. Okay, we've...

That show, of course, is America's Next Top Model, on which Barker serves as resident photographer and judge, along with an assortment of fashionistas, including host and producer Tyra Banks.

Photographic team Markus Klinko and Indrani made the image here in 2006 for V magazine, which invited a number of noted photographers to shoot their own interpretations of a V cover. Mostly, I love it because when we were shooting it we had no idea if we were getting anything good, says Klinko, the half of the team who takes the pictures. For Indrani, who helps create the mise-en-scene for the team's images and does post-production work, the photo brings back memories of happy chaos. Sometimes,...
