An exhibition featuring the Supermodels of the 70s and 80s is due to open on the 28th of January at the Steven Kasher Gallery in New York. The exhibition features ten portraits of legendary supermodels shot by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. The images of models; Christie Brinkley, Carol Alt, Cheryl Tiegs, Lisa Taylor, Beverly Johnson, and Nancy Donahue amongst others, were taken in 2009 whilst Greenfield-Sanders was working on a project for Vanity Fair magazine.
In an interview for stevenkasher.com, Greenfield-Sanders pays tribute, "These women, now in their fifties, were once the reigning queens of American beauty. As ultimate icons of world-wide marketing, I knew their stories would be extraordinary, and I wanted to hear what they had to say." By photographing these icons of beauty, Greenfield-Sanders hopes to draw attention to "how we deal with ageing in our hopelessly youth oriented society."
The portraits of some of modelling's most famous faces, provide a moment to reflect on our perceptions of beauty and the ageing process, and illustrate that the two need not be mutually exclusive.
