Iman, Paris, 1990
Roxanne Lowit’s beginnings in fashion photography lead her to become a premier photographer of the rich and famous. One of only a few photographers allowed to photograph behind the scenes, she elevated the snapshot to an art form in both black and white and color. Her “non-judgmental empathy,” and ability to remain a visual confidant, letting her subjects act naturally rather than posing them, helped her amass an archive of over 200,000 negatives and color slides from fashion events in Paris, New York, Milan and London. This mini retrospective will include over 40 vintage and modern black and white works and over 20 large-scale color photographs.
