    Vogue Paris, October 2018, cover

  • Catalogue Essay

    Of the 13 photographs taken by Mikael Jansson for Vogue Paris’s October 2018 cover story, the present work, featuring rising model Kaia Gerber (daughter of Cindy Crawford), was selected as the official cover. Here, Jansson captures Kaia’s transformation from day to night: on the left, she wears natural makeup and no earring; on the right, she wears metallic blue eyeshadow, glossy red lipstick and a single diamond drop earring. This duality has been skillfully rendered by Jansson in this bold, playful photograph. Throughout his long career, which began with assisting the legendary Richard Avedon in New York in the late 1980s, Jansson has shot for such leading publications as Vogue, W, Harper’s Bazaar and Interview. His work has been featured internationally, including MoMA’s 2004 exhibition Fashioning Fiction in Photography since 1990 and his 2007 solo show and monograph Speed of Light at Stockholm’s Kulturhuset Stadsteatern and published by Steidl.
