    Fashion photography reflects not only the desires and fantasies of the consumer, but also the changing face of cultural values in society as a whole. A stunning object in its own right, Fashion Photography: The Story in 180 Pictures charts the evolution and glamour of the genre. Featuring names from classic photography alongside those from more recent generations, its draws upon myriad archives and sources to provide a comprehensive and accessible exploration of the subject. Eugenie Shinkle charts how fashion photography flourished with the rise of illustrated magazines, how influential art directors collaborated with photographers to shape epochs of style, and how generations of fashion photographers have built upon one another to expand this genre over the past 150 years. Her introduction and commentary throughout the book bring intelligence and fascinating insight to this popular topic. Through 180 key pictures, Shinkle expertly surveys the important figures and movements to provide an essential primer to fashion photography.
