The exhibition showcases the remarkable range of photography that has been commissioned by British Vogue since it was founded in 1916, with over 280 prints from the Condé Nast archive and international collections being shown together for the first time to tell the story of one of the most influential fashion magazines in the world.
The exhibition is currently on tour at the Manchester Art Gallery until the 30th October 2016, where I had the pleasure of checking it out and was not disappointed.
It is an incredible journey of fashion photography through the ages with work from all the masters on display. What I found particularly inspiring is seeing how trends in photography shaped each decade and evolved, yet there was always one constant. The timeless black & white portrait endured.
I highly recommend seeing this exhibition in person if you get the chance, but don’t worry if you cant make it to Manchester.
British Vogue were kind enough to open up the show for a guided tour:
