Steven Meisel is fashion’s pre-eminent image-maker—prolific and innovative —visualizing the trends of every fashion season since the 1980s. Along with his ability to cast the faces and characters that come to represent the look of fashion, Meisel has a prodigious talent for scripting story lines that reference and reflect culture. For well over a decade, he has created every cover and lead editorial story for each issue of Italian Vogue. There may be no other photographer-magazine relationship in any other field of such long-lasting commitment and innovation.Like all truly great image-makers in fashion’s pantheon, Meisel not only depicts fashion, he defines it, and gives it cultural resonance. His influences and inspirations are varied, culled from design, architecture, art, cinema, and literature. Meisel has also portrayed our leading actresses and entertainers, defining the relationships between celebrity and fashion in the process. Most notably, Meisel collaborated with Madonna to create their notorious book Sex (1992). As the primary photographer for American and Italian Vogue, Steven Meisel’s continued interpretations lead and influence our understanding of contemporary fashion. Each season, he has also created some of fashion’s most memorable campaigns for Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Mulberry, Lanvin, and Versace.

Evgenij Soloviev, a 20 year old talent from Russia, continues to hone his craft in digital surrealism. With the advent of photoshop and the likes, a lot of people have dabbled in photo manipulation. The results have been mediocre at best. But put those same tools in the hands of someone like Evgenij, the results speak for themselves. His work truly separates itself from the pack.
