I noticed a short article in the NY Times styles section today about a new photography book, Backstage Dior, from Veteran New York photographer Roxanne Lowit. She has chronicled John Galliano’s fashion shows for over a decade. As per the review:
"With a rough-hewn, up-close approach she delves into the fascinating details behind the scenes. Her collection of snapshotstyle photographs convey the buzz of fashion’s consistently most inspiring spectacle. A bold mixture of color and black-and-white, these images are by turns whimsical and awe-inspiring. As much a star as the celebrities she profiles, Lowit brings an insider perspective to this world of high glamour."
Lowit's new book "Backstage Dior," released today, is an effervescent and whimsical look at John Galliano's ready-to-wear and couture shows for Christian Dior. Taken over the last ten years, the mixture of black and white and color photographs vibrantly reflect the rather magical and always high-energy life backstage at a Dior show.
