Flip Schulke’s photographs of boxing legend Muhammad Ali standing in a swimming pool are probably some of the most impressive images of a sportsman in action ever taken. Yet Schulke (1930–2008) later revealed that the photographs, which feature in the Photographs sale in London on 17 May, were not all they seemed.
One of the highlights of the upcoming Photographs auction (London, 17 May) is a portfolio of eleven images taken in Paris by celebrated American photographer Richard Avedon. Most famously known for his work in fashion magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, Richard Avedon considered himself first and foremost a portrait photographer. Immortalising the essence of the subject was his primary objective. His shoots were dramatic and dynamic, capturing the sitter’s livelihood instead of them becoming statues, as was the norm until that point.
These five iconic photographs capture the glamour of the fashion world from Coco Chanel to the ‘Big Five' supermodels of the 90’s. Explore these examples and more from A Beautiful Life: Photographs from the Collection of Leland Hirsch, which celebrates some of the greatest photographers of the 20th and 21st centuries.
From her sequin-filled cosmetics packaging to her artfully curated Instagram – a glittering amalgam of her 20-plus years beautifying the industry – Pat McGrath’s world is highly experiential. Her singular vision has been praised by Anna Wintour, who called her “the most influential makeup artist in the world,” and Queen Elizabeth II made her a Member of the Order of the British Empire. Intrigued by her innovative career and her Instagram feed’s archival images, Sotheby’s spoke with McGrath about the iconic photos in two upcoming auctions: A Beautiful Life: Photographs from the Collection of Leland Hirsch and Photographs (both 10 April, New York). “Beauty and fashion history influences my art in a major way,” the London-bred, New York-based makeup artist told Sotheby’s. Here, McGrath talks her viral cosmetics line, PAT McGRATH LABS, her passion for subcultures and unexpected sources of inspiration, and her memories working with Irving Penn, Steven Meisel and more fashion photography legends.
