Survival of the Image

Mert & Marcus, Interview September 2010

"A classic...has survived the reaction of the next period or generation. Then it's safe, like a style in architecture or furniture. It's acquired a picturesque dignity to take the place of its fashion," F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Beautiful and Damned

Alpun, Marie Claire Turkey, November 2010

"Perhaps, one could argue that the negotiation of beauty between art versus fashion is one for control of history, or more so infinity. Now fashion and the culture industry produce more images than art. Fashion photography is making our visual history in the way that art has done for centuries. What is the resulting image - a photograph, an art photograph, a fashion photograph, history or simply a finite expression of infinite beauty?," from Art Vs. Fashion

Meisel, Vogue Italia, 2003
