Stephanie Pfriender Stylander: The Untamed Eye


Kim Francis for the "Evening Standard," London. New York City, 1994, is reproduced from <I>Stephanie Pfriender Stylander: The Untamed Eye.</I>

In this deluxe first monograph by noted fashion photographer Stephanie Pfriender Stylander, published to the exacting standards of Takaaki Matsumoto's MW Editions, high-contrast duotone images offer a "rare and unique glimpse into the personalities behind faces of those known around the world," according to Regina F. Graham at the Daily Mail. "Stephanie Pfriender Stylander’s intense and poetic photos take visual inspiration from 1940s Italian neo-realism, the French 1960s New Wave movement and films by John Cassavetes," writes Alexandre Marain for Vogue Paris, though the work is also "imbued with the spirit of the 90s." — Sarah Moroz, i-D Magazine. Sensual and erotic, according to L'Oeil de la Photographie, the book ably showcases "a photographer who could see through the thin veneer of immortality promised by celebrity and instead, show us character." —Erik Nielsen, Musee Magazine.

"We were all on the road: photographers, models, makeup artists, hairdressers, fashion stylists. Every week it was a different location in Europe … We were young and in need of expression. The great fashion and creative directors let you roam, they gave you twenty pages to express your vision—it was a complete creative playground where we could be rebellious, and the word compromise was not spoken, not even thought about." This is how photographer Stephanie Pfriender Stylander describes the heady life of a fashion photographer in the 1990s. This new monograph introduces you to what Pfriender Stylander produced in that atmosphere: evocative photographs capturing sweeping, cinematic fashion stories and intimate portraits of celebrities, all tinged with the photographer's gritty realism. From a very young, unknown Kate Moss to rock legend Keith Richards, Pfriender Stylander finds the hidden essence in her subjects, an unseen character and vulnerability in even the most seasoned veterans.

Inspired by Italian Neorealism, the French New Wave and John Cassavetes films, Pfriender Stylander's work is cinematic. Fashion models, actors and musicians (including Joaquin Phoenix, Nicole Kidman and Björk, among others) are transformed into characters who embody her vision.
