The last time fashion photographer Steven Meisel put prints on sale was 11 years ago, when he exhibited seven images from one Versace campaign at London’s White Cube gallery in 2001. That was the only time, until now. This week, the lensman, who has shot imaginative and striking editorials for the likes of Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and Valentino, and magazines that include Italian Vogue, W, and American Vogue, is inviting potential collectors to his studio through Friday to view the images for sale.
From a all-American 1997 photograph featured in Italian Vogue depicting an ideal family (and a young Mischa Barton), to a 1992 black-and-white portrait capturing the early beginnings of the grunge era for American Vogue that Anna Wintour almost cut, to an androgynous model smoking a cigarette from a 2004 W shoot called “Asexual Revolution” — the images beautifully capture a moment in fashion’s zeitgeist. And even better, the images will be part of a traveling museum exhibition of Meisel’s work scheduled to take place in 2014 — so get ‘em before they’re gone. To make an appointment, contact Kelly Padden at Padden Kerr Projects.
