  • Catalogue Essay

    ‘This is the first of many successful photographs I have done with Phyllis Posnick [Fashion Editor] for American Vogue. They are meant to illustrate written pieces; Anna Wintour gives me great freedom to illustrate them in unconventional manners. My agent at the time saw this image and said it would never run. He had never seen anything like this in American Vogue before. That was exactly why it ran – because it was so different.’
