David Sims for Supreme.

Supreme have worked with photographer David Sims on an exclusive project documenting their team riders Tyshawn Jones, Sage Elsesser, Sean Pablo and Aidan Mackey, and will be releasing this as a hardcover book. Shot in New York, the images take in a range of set-ups, both on location and in the studio, steering away from typical skate photography to offer a unique take on American youth.

David Sims was central to an insurgent moment in fashion photography in the early nineties. Alongside Juergen Teller, Corinne Day and Wolfgang Tillmans, he helped define a new soulfulness in fashion imagery. Stripping back the glamour and luxury of the supermodel era, through their filter, photography began to shift towards a renewed honesty with direct and raw images.

Sims became an influential voice in fashion working on campaigns and projects with Raf Simons, Calvin Klein, Helmut Lang, Prada and Yohji Yamamoto. His editorial work saw him deliver seminal magazine covers capturing two icons who shaped the nineties, with Kurt Cobain in The Face (September 1993), and Kate Moss for i-D (February 1996).

Moving away from his minimal earlier style, recently his work for Arena Homme+ magazine has taken on a more nebulous palette, enriching this with a lo-fi approach which further adds to his powerful ongoing vision.

One day in New York in the late 1980s, five “It” girls gathered before the lens of German photographer Peter Lindbergh. Their names were Naomi, Linda, Tatjana, Christy, and Cindy, and a now-iconic black-and-white shot of them would become the cover of British Vogue’s January 1990 issue, heralding the beginning of the supermodel era and turning its subjects into stars. More than 30 years later, Lindbergh is now the focus.

“Peter Lindbergh: A Different Vision on Fashion Photography,” a career-spanning retrospective of his work, opens September 10 at the Kunsthal in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. But if you can’t make the trip overseas, you can pick up its coinciding compendium (Taschen), which includes 400 images, arranged alphabetically by the countless designers he’s collaborated with, from Azzedine Alaïa to Yohji Yamamoto.

doraemonrules  asked:

Do you think models like Cara Delevigne and Joan Smalls will ever achieve the same status as Gisele or Naomi Campbell? Or is the real 'supermodel' era long dead?

I don’t think models want to be called ‘supermodels’ anymore. Personally, I think it’s limiting. Cara is acting and art directing. Karlie runs her own Kookie enterprise. These ‘supermodels’ are becoming their own enterprises now. They aren’t a face and body to be marketed. They’re CEOs. 💪
