Berthoud, Francois - Unified Message: Fashionable Photography Meets Drawing (New in paper!)
Fashion photography and fashion drawing are not only images of creation, but creations in and of themselves--productions of beauty, of outfits and of lifestyles. They mediate images of fashion's fast trade which, as visual statements, are long-lasting, extending well beyond the day. In Unified Message, photographers and draftsmen carry on an unusual dialogue. Pictures by three of the most important fashion photographers of our time-- Peter Lindbergh, Paolo Roversi and Alexei Hay--are questioned, commented on and extended by three fashion illustrators of international renown--Mats Gustafson, Ruben Toledo and Francois Berthoud. The communicative power of fashion is here revealed in the interplay of their respective images.
