The show ‘Raw Footage’, displays the work (photos of Charlize Theron,Rosie Huntington-Whiteley,Kate Moss,Marilyn Monroe and more..) of some of the world’s best photographers;Mario Testino and David Lachapelle,Douglas Kirkland,Gavin Bond and more… A spokesman for Raw footage said;
‘While historically portraiture was used as a way to record and document our existence, fashion photography and its incorporation of the celebrity have become tools to define our contemporary aesthetic, consumer mentality and collective creativity.
‘By presenting a garment or lifestyle as a commercial product, fashion photographers and their collaborators – designers, stylists, models and viewers alike – adopt the highest level of credibility as disseminators of a moment in cultural history.’
Raw footage opens at London’s Opera Gallery New Bond Street, London July 1. See more photos below…
