Martin Munkácsi

Martin Munkácsi may not be the most well known name in fashion photography but in the 1930s it was this Hungarian photographer who introduced movement and spontaneity into what was previously a pretty staged affair, confined to using mannequin-like models in musty studios.

The watershed moment was in the Winter of 1933 when he took the photograph shown above, of Lucile Brokaw, the socialite daughter of the Olympic ice-skater Irving Brokaw, for a swimwear spread in Harpers Bazaar. The impulsiveness captured in this image moved fashion photography into a new era of informality and earned Munkácsi the accolade of the father of modern fashion photography

Yohji Yamamoto

“For some reason, I am moved by the female form, as seen from the side, or diagonally from behind. Like a feeling of waiting to chase after and restrain something that passes by, or passes through. You could call it a feeling of ‘missing’ something.”

“…the Back is important to me. I think clothes should be made from the back, and not the front. The back supports the clothes, and so if it is not properly made, the front cannot exist.”

Yohji Yamamoto, quoted from Talking to Myself, published by Steidi Verlag, 2002.
