Sophisticated, elegant, and provocative, Harper's Bazaar showcases the work of visionary stylists, expressive photographers, and talented designers, covering what's new to what's next. In the ten years since Glenda Bailey became Editor in Chief of Harper's Bazaar, she and Creative Director Stephan Gan have carried on the magazine's tradition of publishing innovative, high-impact photography.
Harper's Bazaar: A Decade of Style, on exhibit at the International Center of Photography (NYC) distills that decade into a group of nearly thirty images by some of the most important photographers working today, such as Peter Lindbergh, Patrick Demarchelier, Tim Walker, William Klein, Jean-Paul Goude, Marc Seliger, Terry Richardson, Camilla Akrans, Solve Sundsbo, Mario Sorrenti, and Karl Lagerfeld.
Under Bailey, Bazaar has been especially alert to shifts in the culture. Photographers are encouraged to borrow freely from the wide world of pop, so Demarchelier casts Stephanie Seymour as a Warhol superstar, and Julianne Moore looks like she stepped out of a John Currin painting in Peter Lindbergh's witty transformation." Fashion reflects what's going on in our world, and Bazaar makes pop culture fashionable. This exhibition is the culmination of a decade in a new world where every popular phenomenon comes with a fashion spin." ~~ Glenda Bailey
