I don’t think I’ve talked about him before… weird.
Well assuming you haven’t already heard and are living in a hobo hut, Steven Meisel is probably the most influential fashion photographer of our time. Born in 1954, this dude has skyrocketed countless babe models to fame and is amazing at photography. His work is simply flawless, yet so real. I like this guy so much, and even without meeting him, you can get a feel about how he is with the work that he does. He’s notoriously shy, but that doesn’t stop him from doing what he loves. Props to this guy, man. I’d love to meet him one day.
He had an interview with German magazine 032c, which is making a huge fuss in the fashion world.
Steven Meisel is fashion’s pre-eminent image-maker — prolific and innovative — visualizing the trends of every fashion season since the 1980s. Along with his ability to cast the faces and characters that come to represent the look of fashion, Meisel has a prodigious talent for scripting story lines that reference and reflect culture. For well over a decade, he has created every cover and lead editorial story for each issue of Italian Vogue. There may be no other photographer-magazine relationship in any other field of such long-lasting commitment and innovation.
