Fashion Statements presents an ‘archaeological' view of the best fashion photography over the last two decades, offering a unique perspective on fashion history.
Over two hundred images by sixty-two of the world's best photographers display recent cultural forces to the full, from the rebellious energy and poetry of punk and the post-modern and modernist variants of 1980s glamour, to high-tech and futurist aesthetics and the way in which fashion has increasingly become allied to fine art.
Ulf Poschardt believes that fashion photography can now lay claim to being a distinct art. This collection bears his theory out: the medium has indeed become the message.
This book was published to accompany the touring exhibition ‘Archeology of Elegance'.
