Kurzbeschreibung

1. September 1998
The unexpected runway moment, the candid dressing room expression, the steely eyed scrutiny of the front-row denizens. Runway Madness is a personal invitation to New York's infamous Fashion Week. More than 100 arresting photographs by Pulitzer Prize- winning photographer Lucian Perkins many never published until now tell the behind-the-scenes story of this unparalleled fashion event. Perkins captures the models up-close and personal: Kate Moss without make-up, Naomi Campbell in curlers, and Shalom Harlow, Amber Valetta, Christy Turlington, and many others in high pomp as well as unguarded circumstance. Also exposed are the fashion editors and buyers, journalists, and stars whose high-visibility presence is essential. Quotes from fashion insiders provide a running commentary and captions by Washington Post fashion writer Robin Givhan explain each image. The beat, the lights, the cascade of beauty and color: this is not only a performance, but also a performance art. Long and lean like the runway itself, Runway Madness is the total high fashion experience.

Amazon.de

"Beyond the smoke and mirrors of the runway lies another part of the fashion world." It is there that Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Lucian Perkins finds the most compelling images: über-waif Kate Moss sipping champagne decked out in an undershirt, jeans, and a bogling network of curled hair extensions. Design maven Isaac Mizrahi fretting over a voluminous skirt. Glamour-pusses Naomi Campbell and Veronica Webb lolling around, waiting for their curlers to set, while the clock ticks at the rate of $250 per hour. Perkins gets up on the runway, too. He turns his camera on his colleagues, who form an impenetrable wall of extra-long lenses and tripods. He looks out into the audience, where he finds the gender-bending RuPaul, Southern belle Dolly Parton, and actress Mira Sorvino parked amid the ubiquitous fashion editors and buyers and socialites. And he follows the impossibly fabulous creatures as they strut their wares down that most glamorous corridor--the runway.

The unusually long and narrow shape of the book is an excellent format for Perkins's atmospheric panoramic shots, and leaves room for quotes by Azzedine Alaia, Coco Chanel, and other fashion fixtures to accompany the smaller images. Readers who don't share original supermodel Iman's fashion ennui--she's quoted as saying she "couldn't get excited about another dress"--should be more than sated by the 100 fantastic photos of frocks, gowns, and shifts in Runway Madness.

Pressestimmen

Reviews from: AMERICAN PHOTO PHOTOGRAPHY ANNUAL It's a fashion show. There are beautiful models, fancy clothes, A-list celebs. There's also pushing and shoving by the mob of photographers crammed into a section at the foot of the runway trying to get shots worthy of running in fashion magazines. And then there's Pulitzer Prize-winning "Washington Post" staff photographer Lucian Perkins, stationed on the side of the runway, spinning around to photograph the onlookers or bending down to photograph a model's foot in mid-step. Perkins, who has been on general assignment with the "Post" since 1979, and won his Pulitzer for a four-year look at how poverty affected three generations of a family, has applied his documentary approach in covering the New York fashion shows for ten years. "I enjoy shooting the scene around the fashion shows," he says. "It's a very sort of bizarre culture." Perhaps because Perkins is more removed from the fashion world than some photographers, he is able to focus not so much on the clothes as the people behind the productions. The results are in Perkin's new book, "Runway Madness." For the 45-year-old photographer, who just shot a story on environmental problems in Russia, doing the fashion shows isn't always easy. "Everyone comes to watch a show for 20 minutes, then they dash off to the next show," he says. "It is a really exhausting work." Lucian Perkins, a staff photographer for the "Washington Post, " has received numerous awards including "Newspaper Photographer of the Year" in 1994, by the National Press Photographers Association for a portfolio that included projects in Russia an his behind-the-scenes fashion work in New York, the focus of "Runway Madness." The New York fashion world seems far removed from war-torn Chechnya, where Perkins photographed a small boy looking out the window of a bus, which won him World Press Photo of the Year in 1996, or the work for which he and "Post" reporter Leon Dash were aw

5.0 von 5 Sternen Insightful Photography 9. Dezember 1998
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I was fascinated by Perkins' book examining the fashon industry---something that was quite foreign to me. His insightful photographic analysis of the industry and the people opened a new understanding of this activity so foreign to those of us in west Texas. His photographs conveyed the the energy, the joy and despair, anxiety and confidence that accompanies modeling. A great "inside look" by an immanently accomplished photographer.

Lovely presentation of the underbelly of the shows. Photos were pure art and the writing of my idol, Robin Givhan, brought it all together. I'll enjoy this book over and over!
