A fashion photograph invites us into a world: sometimes of fame and luxury, often of youth and glamour, but rooted always in notions of beauty. Contemporary fashion photography is now so expanded that its boundaries blur into the realms of documentation, celebrity, fine art, social commentary and fantasy; there are progressively fewer rules and fewer limits. Fashion photography is a lively visual testament to the culture of which it is part. The resultant striking photographs allure the viewer, asking them to indulge in the beauty and vitality of what is presented. Fashion photographers push their unique vision within a constant practice of adaptation, creating enduring images that transcend fashion illustration.
The five young photographers in this show display the diversity of the genre and show us how this creative form is constantly developing; they shoot for many of the leading contemporary fashion magazines such as Vogue, LOVE, POP, Another, Dazed, i-D, Harper's Bazaar, Arena Homme +, and Numero, and are amongst the sharpest rising talents in this industry. All works on show are for sale; original limited edition prints ranging from £250 to £2,500s.
