From 17th January to 7th April 2013- The Fondazione Forma per La Fotagrafia presents FASHION- a century of extraordinary photography from the Condé Nast archives – A Must See Exhibition if you are in Milan.

“We have to make Vogue into a Louvre.”
Edward Steichen to Edna Woodman Chase, 1920s

These words said by Steichen to the first editor in chief of Vogue aptly summarized the revolution started by Condé Nast, both in fashion as well as in photography more generally, when the publisher acquired the prestigious Vogue masthead in 1909. From then on, the story of fashion was no longer told exclusively in delicate nineteenth-century illustrations, but also by great international photographers with creative license.

Edward Steichen was one of the first photographers to shoot for Vogue, accepting the challenge and not worrying about those who accused him of selling out to fashion.

This must see exhibition is organized by the Fondazione Forma and curated by Nathalie Herschdorfer, brings together an extraordinary selection of images from Condé Nast archives in New York, Paris, London, and Milan, marking a unique occasion to tell the history of fashion photography, through precious and rare works, from its origins to the present day.

Fashion photography is like a work of theatre, in which editors, stylists models, make-up artists join the photographer, to create the image. Fertile ground for experimental antonomasia, fashion photography nonetheless reaches its most complete form on the printed page, and it is this indissoluble bind between photographers and editors that leads to the most creative, provocative, and richly interpretive collaborations, and, above all, to style that is ahead of its time.

From Steichen and Beaton to Guy Bourdin, Peter Lindbergh, and countless others: photography’s great creative possibilities found fertile ground in the pages of the Condé Nast magazines, and there brought dreams and visions of fashion to life.

In addition to shots by forefathers like Cecil Beaton, Man Ray, Edward Steichen, and Horst P. Horst, the exhibit will include works by Helmut Newton, Mario Testino, Paolo Roversi, Peter Lindbergh, Tim Walker, Erwin Blumenfeld, David Bailey, Guy Bourdin, Sølve Sundsbø, and many more including
