About

To coincide with London Fashion Week the Michael Hoppen Gallery is delighted to announce an exhibition of enduring and influential photographs that have defined nearly a century of fashion photography.

Spanning the entire 20th century the exhibition will include work by Baron Adolphe de Meyer one of the first ever fashion photographer; Martin Munkasci whose pioneering snapshot aesthetic moved fashion photography out of the studio; the ambitious, arrogant narratives of Guy Bourdin; Man Ray whose commercial work Le Mode fused surrealism and fashion; the fantastical images of Sarah Moon and the raw sexual exuberance of Terry Richardson. It was not in the brief of these photographers to produce something artistic, rather to produce what their editorial or advertising assignment dictated. This exhibition features the photographers who evolved distinctive aesthetic signatures and illustrate how the boundaries between art and fashion were crossed.
