“Once overlooked by collectors and museums because of its commercial origins, fashion photography is now recognized as having produced some of the most creative work of the twentieth century” says Timothy Potts, director of the J. Paul Getty Museum

The exhibition features the work of renowned fashion photographers such as Richard Avedon, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Helmut Newton, Nick Knight, Edward Steichen, and Tim Walker.

You will be taken on a historical journey highlighting the political, social, technological and economic cultural shifts. From the “patriotic chic” of World War II to the digitalized editing possibilities of the 21st century.

“My hope is that this sweeping introduction to fashion photography will not only educate and delight our visitors, but also inspire new scholarly inquiry,” adds Martineau.

It will be held at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center from June 26–October 21, 2018.
