Description

Stunning photography from renowned photographer Anne Menke Foreword by American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger Texts by luminaries such as Peter Beard, Paul Johnson and Paul Smith explain where fashion meets culture in ethnic populations in Latin America, Europe, Asia, North America, and more Anne Menke has traveled the world on assignment for the likes of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair, and The New York Times, usually in search of the perfect environment to shoot a fashion spread. Through this, she has discovered that these environments themselves are the origins of much of the fashion we see on the runways today and has compiled an incredible record of people and places with that in mind.

Always at the cutting edge, Miller has photographed his own blood using a microscopic camera, developed multiple screen printing visualization projects with scientists from Brookhaven National Laboratory, and in his most recent body of work, Health of the Planet, featured the Amazonian flora and fauna in a series of x-ray photographs.
