Launch Slideshow

After World War II, American fashion photography garnered attention around the globe, particularly through the inventive images of Irving Penn, who joined the staff of American Vogue in 1943. In the late 20th century, Helmut Newton, Albert Watson and Herb Ritts re-energized the field with their iconic images of supermodels, such as Christy Turlington and Alek Wek. These and other legendary artists will be included in Sotheby’s upcoming Photographs auction.
