Selling Dreams: 100 Years of Fashion Photography


Aberdeen Art Gallery

Until 20 April

In 1984, Irving Penn commented that he saw his role at Vogue as 'selling dreams, not clothes'. Selling Dreams is the first touring exhibition from the V&A's Collection to explore the work of international fashion photographers and to draw together such a broad range of important historic and contemporary fashion images.

The photographs reflect key themes in fashion photography throughout the past hundred years featuring more than twenty major fashion photographers.

Exhibition organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London
