New York is always bursting with activities, and one of the most recent ones will be worth a visit for those who enjoy fashion photography. “Richard Prince: Fashion” will open at the Nahmad Contemporary in New York. This is the first time that all nine of the images in Prince’s famous fashion series will be displayed together as one set.
The pictures were taken between 1982 and 1984. Prince’s style is to crop, filter and then redisplay the images which creates a close-up head shot of each woman. Their faces and vision are always partially obscured by sunglasses or bangs or a hat, creating questions about “art and authorship, as well as our complicity in consumerism.”
