Harper's Bazaar: A Decade of Style Exhibit

From TimeOut New York: Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey gets a mini-retrospective with this show, which features 30 images taken for the magazine since her tenure began in 2001. The chosen shots illustrate how the publication merges fashion, pop culture and high design, such as a photo of a leather-clad Naomi Campbell sitting atop an alligator. Others, like a Warholesque portrait of the model Stephanie Seymour, reveal how fine art inspires the magazine’s spreads.
Francesca Granata says… “Photography is one field where fashion and art collide most obviously. It’s also interesting how some of the same characters, like Lady Gaga [and] Daphne Guinness, appear in this exhibition.”
