Above left by Steven Meisel, above right Steven Klein. Both photographers share a fascination for sharp, high modernism. Their nostalgia for the past is brought to life through provoctive David Lynch style narrative editorials and ads.
Meisel was born in 1954 and after Parsons began working as an illustrator for Halston. Eventually his photos of Phoebe Cates received recognition and led to his development.
