    Your Favourite [analog] Fashion Photographer

    Anyone got a favourite fashion photographer to post. Mine would be Nick Knight who uses a 10x8 Sinar (I think)

    Anyone else?

    I don`t know much about the current photographers, but I quite like some of the stuff done by David Bailey over the decades. Nice punchy B&W`s taken with a range of camera`s from 35mm to 11x14.

    Isn't that more than a little bit like asking whether you prefer The Outlaws or The Hell's Angels?

    Probably Patrick Demarchelier for fashion and Greg Gorman for celebrity/fashion stuff.


    I don't know any of the new "hot' ones.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Since the Avedon/Penn heyday it's all been downhill as the magazines became increasingly full of ads -- essentially catalogs sewn-together with a thin vein of "content." The capabilities of editorial/photographic expression and assertion in the fashion world dwindled, left to the various corporate advertising departments. Since then... Bailey? Sarah Moon? Helmut? All known more as cartoonish celebrity brand names themselves, rather than real players in fashion itself. When you think of newer shooters -- say, David Lachapelle -- do you think of the shooter's aura & style, or of the clothing?

    Penn could shoot clothing.

    I cannot choose a "favorite". Selecting *one* infers an exclusion of others - and that is much like trying to choose between Michael Franks and Mozart.
    Notable ...: Patrick Demarcheliar, and Horst P. Horst.

    I think the one exception would be the New York Times Magazine fashion issue they put out, I think twice a year. A lot more creative fashion images than Vogue, Elle, Bazaar, etc... etc...
