Article

Photography began to make inroads into advertising—including fashion publicity—by the start of the twentieth century following the evolution of the halftone process in the 1880s.

These could be reproduced more easily (especially when it came to color) but also, given that the visual quality of halftones on newsprint could be somewh

As one of the main supermodels in the 1990s, Helena Christensen was frequently photographed for fashion magazines. Born to a Peruvian mother and Danish father, Christensen was raised in Denmark.

From the 1950s, technical developments reduced the weight of photographic equipment and so contributed to the metamorphosis of fashion photography. The use of the Rolleiflex, flashes that allowed artificial light, and the development of new printing methods played a key role internationally and also in the emergence of a “French school.” The styles of the Groupe des XV photographers such as Philippe Pottier, Robert Doisneau, and the Séeberger brothers, or Italians such as Edigio Scaïoni or Frank

Dress in Africa has attracted the attention of foreign observers since the earliest encounters with peoples on the continent. Whether they deemed it exotic, curious, ugly, beautiful, or comical, writers of all backgrounds often mentioned and depicted dress in their publications. From the seventeenth century onward, descriptions of Africa were published with engravings, woodcuts, and, later, lithographs, among other types of illustrations, that helped readers to envision faraway worlds and peoples

Hollywood studios were beginning to appreciate their power.

The studios owned distribution rights in cinemas across America, and it was easy to export Hollywood films, first to Europe and later worldwide, despite the existence of national cinemas elsewhere. In the early 2000s, despite the vast size of the Hindi film industry, Ameri

Encyclopedia entry

Australian fashion photography has a relatively short history, starting with the earliest examples of fashion advertisements from the beginning of the twentieth century through to the popularization of the genre in Australia via the work of modernist photographers such as Max Dupain and the postwar heyday of Helmut Newton and others. An exploration of the strong voice of independent publishers who have helped to market Australian fashion and style is noted and includes the internationally recogni
