MoMA: Is Fashion Modern?

I was approached by The Museum of Modern Art, New York to create images for their first fashion exhibition since 1944. Commissioned by curator Paola Antonelli, the show presents 111 items of clothing and accessories that have had a profound impact on the world in the 20th and 21st centuries. The exhibition traces the history of each item in relation to cultural forces past and present, touching on labor, marketing, technology, religion, politics, aesthetics and popular culture.
Working along with Set Designer Anna Lomax and Stylist Grace Joel, I produced 18 images for MoMA. The shots are featured as part of the exhibition, catalogue and an encyclopedia-style A-Z book accompanying the show. Our eclectic list of subjects ranged from iconic Levis 501s and the advent of the bikini through to street style favourites, Nike Air Force 1s and concept pieces from Comme Des Garcons "Body Meets Dress, Dress Meets Body" collection.
