Curated by Diana Edkins


This world-exclusive exhibition presents some of the globe’s most influential fashion photographers, with imagery shot for iconic publications, which include British Vogue, Italian Vogue, Vogue Paris and Vogue Home amongst others.

This exhibition is not a survey, but a focused consideration of a particularly astute vision of the ever-changing world, where the artistic and commercial effected a clear and consistent change in fashion photography.

It explores how personal photography has inspired a new visual vocabulary. Fashion photography has always oscillated between the two poles of conformism and revolt and in this case it has become the backdrop for these photographers and their exploration of identity, gender and sexuality rather than ephemeral beauty. These bold photographers show us new ways to think and engage with a life that is changing so quickly around us.

Photographers included: Robert Mapplethorpe, Bruce Weber, Jack Pierson, Craig McDean, Viviane Sassen, Stef Mitchell, Kristen-Lee Moolman
