‘The freshest take on the fashion world through the camera lens … more than a coffee table read, thanks to fascinating mini biographies … Whether you’re a sucker for creative adverts or you can’t resist clever editorial shoots, you’ll appreciate Keaney’s guide to modern fashion photography and its continual reinvention’ RunningInHeels.com
The photographs brought together here are diverse, striking, sometimes shocking, but, like all great photography, utterly memorable – from Axel Hoedt’s bold graphic experimentation and fascination with traditional costume, and Erik Madigan Heck’s painterly use of colour and natural light, to Daniel Jackson’s exploitation of movement and dynamic shape or Hanna Putz’s cool neutral aesthetic.
With an introduction that sets out the meaning of contemporary fashion photography and its main visual trends, as well as texts on each of the photographers that profile and critique their careers and work to date, this book looks beyond what is ‘now’ and showcases what comes ‘next’.
