Face of Fashion: Fashion Photography, Art Direction, and Magazine Design
SVA (136 W. 21st St., Manhattan)
Free, RSVP required
Photography critic and curator Vince Aletti will discuss fashion magazines’ troubled relationship with reality, and the ways in which, while providing a means of escape, their pages also act as sites of cultural flux, recording every minute shift in taste and style.
Using examples of vintage and contemporary fashion editorials, Aletti will show how great photography and sensitive design work in concert, and why fashion photography needs to be seen in the context of the magazine.
