Face of Fashion Catalogue, National Portrait Gallery

As part of a major survey of fashion photography the National Portrait Gallery published Face of Fashion – a book exploring the symbiotic relationship between contemporary portrait photography and fashion.

Each photographer is represented by a range of portraits, some of the images produced as ads, others commissioned for editorial features. The subjects range from the famous: Kate Moss by Corinne Day, and Sting by Paolo Roversi to the anonymous Woman I by Mario Sorrenti.

There are four different editions of the book all sporting different covers. The design turns the book into a must-have fashion accessory as much as a beautifully produced document of contemporary photography.
