Things may have changed considerably in the past couple of decades with the rise of the internet and new media, but throughout the 20th century fashion photography was central to the dissemination of new styles and trends. This new exhibition at the Museu del Disseny takes photographs from the museum’s fashion photography collection, which comprises over 460 images, and explores the evolution of fashion photography throughout this time period. The photographs, taken by 35 different photographers, span over a century, from 1903 to 2013, and have different origins. While many of the photographs are taken from fashion magazine editorial shoots, others were commissioned by fashion brands, designers and companies to use in advertising campaigns, giving the audience a broad view of fashion photography’s reach. The exhibition itself is split into seven sections, each one illustrating how the photography of fashion, as well as its relevance and influence, have evolved with the passing of time. Curated by Juan Naranjo.
