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.
"Today, fashion photography is an art in its own right. A visual language that is both powerful and has extended the boundaries for what photography can be. For more than 90 years, we have been influenced and astonished by this dream world that is conjured up before us," says Jan Broman, founder and director of Fotografiska.
