Exhibition: Fashion In The Mirror

UK's first independent gallery devotet to photography, the Photographers' Gallery, currently hosts the amazing exhibition "Fashion In The Mirror". It is curated by Michel Mallard and Raphaëlle Stopin (organizers of the annual International Fashion and Photography Festival in Hyères ).

The exhibition features works by 21 world-class photographers such as Nick Knight, Ines van Lamsweerde & Vidoodh Matadin, Steven Meisel, Juergen Teller, Mario Testino and many more. It deals with self reflection in fashion photography and provides a rare look behind the scenes.
In the pictures photographers observe themselves during work, which means they are mainly included in the photo itself. The shoot becomes a kind of self-portrait revealing the secrets of glamour and seduction.
