Lowit, Roxanne

Originally a textile designer, Roxanne Lowit moved to photography and entered the closed curtains of fashion show backstages and parties. The American photographer soon captured where the authentic action was, depicting models - an insider of the glorious supermodel era and especially the ‘holy trinity’ composed by Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Naomi Campbell -, celebrities and fashion designers in their most sincere and vulnerable, revealing the energetic, the glamorous but also the somewhat decadent and chaotic atmosphere of the stardom industry. Never judgmental and strongly empathetic, Roxanne Lowit is considered by Karl Lagerfeld as a true ‘fashion historian…a witness to the marriage of vanity and fame.’
