Please note the new start time is 6:45 p.m. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The magazine form is central to the story of fashion photography. In conjunction with the release this fall of Aperture Magazine’s fashion issue, guest edited by the esteemed fashion photography duo Inez & Vinoodh, this panel will explore the role of the magazine as a platform for innovation in fashion photography and for fostering the careers of many of the industry’s most important imagemakers. The conversation will touch upon independent magazines of the 1990s, such as i-D and The Face, and explore how publications today expand a tradition forged by these groundbreakers.

Speakers include Inez & Vinoodh, who came up working for The Face in the 1990s and have since photographed for most major fashion publications; Penny Martin, editor of The GentlewomanPhil Bicker, creative director, designer and photo editor and former art director at The Face magazine; moderated by Charlotte Cotton, Visiting Faculty, Parsons Photography and author of The Photograph as Contemporary Art. Other notable guests to be announced.
