Overview

British photographer Glen Luchford first caught the public eye in the late 1990s, with his avant-garde fashion campaigns for Prada. With its elaborate lighting and atmosphere of conspicuous artifice, Luchford's highly cinematic imagery exemplified the merging visual languages of fashion and art photography, launching the photographer as one of his generation's most imaginative talents. Part of Steidldangin's new British Influence series, this monograph presents 80 photographs from the past two decades, beginning with Luchford's earliest images, which prefigure the gritty, found-light aesthetic that defined the first half of the 1990s, from the quiet black-and-white portraits of musical icons such as Ian Brown, to more aggressive street shots of Kate Moss that catch the spirit of a seedy New York en route to gentrification. In later work, Luchford's from-the-hip naturalism gave way to an almost Hitchcockian style of portraiture. This monograph presents works in a range of media, from 35 mm black-and-white to 8 x 10, to digital formats, and features an interview with Luchford's long-time friend and artistic collaborator, painter Jenny Saville.
From the very start of his career, Glen Luchford reinvigorated British fashion photography through his work for magazines such as i-D and The Face. He has shot campaigns for advertising clients such as Yves Saint Laurent and Calvin Klein and has exhibited with painter Jenny Saville. Luchford's work has been exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Photographer's Gallery in London, and at The Museum of Modern Art in New York (as part of the 2004 exhibit Fashioning Fiction).
