Steven Meisel in Technicolor
Day two of my tribute to the one and only Steven Meisel features some of my favorite images in color. I thought Steven’s work in black and white was stunning, but while preparing this post, I realized that these color images are beyond incredible too.
For fun, see if you can find the one person smiling (with teeth showing) in the photos. Must have been at Steven’s request because there are no accidents when it comes to Steven’s imagery. I’ve also included a few interesting facts about Steven as well.
Big hugs and a dozen sterling roses to you, Steven, for being such an inspiration.
Steven studied fashion illustration at Parson’s in New York City.
Steven got his start photographing his friends on the weekend.
Steven’s first job was at Seventeen magazine.
Steven worked for Halston and Women’s Wear Daily as an illustrator before becoming a photographer.
Steven’s photographic eye is known for capturing social satire, portraiture and couture fantasies.
Steven was friends with other artists and legends in their own right like Stephen Sprouse and Kenneth Paul Block.
Steven has photographed every cover and ground-breaking editorial for Italian Vogue since 1988.
As a kid, Steven was a bit obsessed with British model Twiggy.
Steven has not only discovered supermodels, but much like Oprah’s influence in the media, working with Steven would send the careers of hairstylists like Oribe and make-up artists like Pat McGrath into the fashion stratosphere.
Steven very rarely grants interviews and amazingly has never published a retrospective of his exceptional body of work, so it has been my pleasure to compile a few of my favorite images for Zavvi Rodaine readers to enjoy.
