Fotografiska Presents Fashion: Fashion Photography Through Time

. November 26, 2010 . 0 Comments

Fotografiska presents Fashion – Fashion Photography Through Time, featuring more than 200 works by 51 internationally famous photographers, this is the most comprehensive exhibition of fashion photography ever to be shown in Europe.

Fashion reflects the development of fashion photography over the decades, from Man Ray’s experimental compositions in the 1920s, via iconic figures such as Irving Penn and Richard Avedon, to the supermodel cult fostered by Steven Meisel and Peter Lindbergh in the 1990s. A few acclaimed 21st-century photographers are also featured, including Michelangelo Di Battista, Mikael Jansson and Esther Haase.

Fashion is on view now and closes on 2 January, 2011. The exhibition is based on selected works from the Camera Works collection in Berlin.
