The first book to showcase and critically explore the groundbreaking photography of fashion magazines over the last century
For nearly a century, fashion magazines have provided sophisticated platforms for cutting-edge photography - work that challenges conventions and often reaches far beyond fashion itself. In this book, acclaimed photography critic Vince Aletti has selected 100 significant magazine issues from his expansive personal archive, revealing images by photographers rarely seen outside their original context. With his characteristic élan and featuring stunning images, Aletti has created a fresh, idiosyncratic, and previously unexplored angle on the history of photography.
