In the past, fashion photography acted as the standard bearer of the garment industry, simply a good way to sell clothes. Today, fashion photographers have moved beyond this narrow turf to become cultural anthropologists, laying bare our secret desires. Photographers like Corinne Day, Inez van Lamswerde, Helmut Newton, Wolfgang Tillmans, Bruce Weber, Ellen yon Unwerth, and others have done much to dissolve the boundaries between what is worn and the way we wear it. Nowhere is this collision between style and the subconscious as superbly delineated as in this comprehensive tribute to fashion's impact on the '90s.
