Beyond Blonde

On the occasion of Prestel's publication of Beyond Blonde by Steve Hiett, the Galleria Carla Sozzani in Milan presents an exhibition of photographs personally selected by the author.
Printed in large format and mounted on aluminium sheet, these twelve images recount Hiett's colorful aesthetic through five decades of style, glamour and fashion. «Things got simple... a camera and one 35mm lens. This meant – explains the famous fashion photographer – I could travel light and keep things as simple as possible. Work fast, anywhere, anytime, any light... But if the photos of the clothes were not perfect, the picture would go in the trash. This way I learned about fashion photography». Born in UK in 1940, since the late 1960s Steve Hiett has been capturing the changing world of fashion through his distinctive, eye-catching photography. Arranged by decades, this personally curated exhibition of Hiett’s work is filled with images that belie the photographer’s nonchalance. Saturated with colour, lit by dazzling flash work, and often off-center, Hiett’s photographs contain brilliantly composed worlds. They tell stories – and the stories change with time. Hiett says about himself: «I do not think of myself as a photographer. I think of myself as someone who uses the camera to create images that I see in my head». He adds, «whether I take them in Paris or Miami, my photographs are middle-class stories of the suburbs; they are about being alone and dreaming».
The exhibition will remain on show at Galleria Carla Sozzani until April 3rd, 2016.
