A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Fashion Photography from the MFA

Museum of Fine Arts Online / Boston / Art

Fans of fashion have always valued the glam photos in the world’s premier glossies, but now these photographs are accepted as works of art. The MFA Boston began building its own holdings in fashion photography back in the year 2000, thanks to director Malcolm Rogers. This ten-photo online survey, moves from 1910, when the art began, and comes up to 1990, with a Herb Ritts photo of a Versace gown, sleek as an Alfa Romeo. In-between there’s Baron Adolf De Meyer, Irving Penn, Deborah Turbeville, and more. —L.J.
