The fifth volume of Study is dedicated to the work of fashion editor Camille Bidault-Waddington, (See our One Greater Reader interview). The task of a stylist is to reflect with clothing the cultural changes in our society, to use the pages of fashion magazines to comment on our times, not only to document sartorial evolutions.
Camille Bidault-Waddington has for over two decades collaborated with the world's leading photographers to create images that push the boundaries of what a fashion photograph can achieve. Her unique vision - with the model as an extension of herself, the photograph as a world to inhabit and clothing as an instinctive interpretation of inner thoughts - is seeked after by the leading fashion magazines of our times.
For this volume we revisited her body of work and edited thousands of fashion images down to under a hundred to create a portfolio that is as much a fashion story as it is the documentation of an artistic personal practice. Authors Natasha Stagg and Wilson Oryema's contributions inspired by these images are a testament to the power of a fashion photograph's capacities to create a world within one frame.
The issue also includes a fashion insert photographed by Angelo Pennetta and styled by Camille Bidault-Waddington with model Kiki Willems.
