The legendary publisher Condé Nast knew how to spot talent behind the camera lens. Photographers he helped launch into prominence through the pages of Vogue, Glamour, Vanity Fair and other magazines included such notables as Edward Steichen and Irving Penn.
Coming into Fashion: A Century of Photography at Condé Nast runs through Feb. 15 at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. The exhibition features 150 creations by 80 of the world’s top fashion photographers, dating from the present to Baron Adolph de Meyer, hired by Vogue in 1913.
“Coming into Fashion is an exhibition that simultaneously charts the history of photography over the period as well as the history of fashion,” says Tim B. Wride, curator of photography. “It is a revealing look at how photographic trends and cultural evolution came to the service of one another.”
