The Decline of Fashion Photography: An Argument in Pictures

From Slate online awhile back.

"Great fashion photography—like great art in general—doesn’t just 'tell about today'; it speaks truths about yesterday and tomorrow. As Nick Knight puts it, 'If you want reality, why don’t you look out of the window?'”

Also... " … many fashion photographers today aren’t even photographers first. Immediately prior to achieving his status of celebrity photographer, Mario Testino was a waiter."

TG is in agreement.
