Fashion Photography: Disposable or Fine Art?

“Because they’re originally conceived and created to appear in magazines and advertisements, fashion photographs are often considered disposable,” says Dan Halm, curator of “Click Chic: The Fine Art of Fashion Photography,” an upcoming exhibition at New York’s Visual Arts Museum. “I’m hoping to change that by highlighting some exceptional images that hold their own as works of art.” The exhibition runs from Sept. 6 to Oct. 6; view some of the photographs, including the one at left by Maki Kawakita, here.
