This exhibition started with the following question: while fashion photographers have the most beautiful women in front of their cameras, but what is their personal relationship to beauty? What is the inspiring power behind the idealized images of the our moment? How does the power of the muse define itself? What evolves, what results beyond the requirements of the market or the order to produce? The exhibition and the book take images of the fashion elite and place them within an artistic frame. Whether intimate, tender moments or unusual, unsparing views – the exhibition concerned much more than reflections of social ideals. It questioned the "the truth of beauty“ and how it reveals or hides itself in the countenance of the public image, while at the time interrogating the shaping of our future perceptions.
