The Big Picture

The photographs of Arthur Elgort created a sensation in his 1971 debut in British Vogue, and something changed forever in the world of fashion photography.
His young and pretty models wore less make-up, were more casual and lively in front of the camera, and moved about freely in outdoor locations such as city street, pools and beaches which characterized his
style. He quickly became one of the best known and most emulated photographers: he was a breath of fresh air, wafting into the world of fashion photography with freely moving models, natural light, and a reportage influence. His ideas of what a fashion photo was, opened up the possibilities of what fashion photography could be to the next generation. The risks that he took with his fashion pictures changed the industry.
For all this, Galleria Carla Sozzani has decided to dedicate an important exhibition to Arthur Elgort after twenty years from the first one. The show encompasses five decades of Arthur Elgort's work, including several original snapshots, a style Elgort introduced into the fashion photography vocabulary. Alongside his personal work, a select grouping of beautiful pictures including Elgort’s iconic fashion photographs of the young women who would become the first generation of supermodels such as Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, Patti Hansen, Iman, Linda Evangelista and Karlie Kloss are also on view.
