Robert Fairer Backstage Pass: Dior, Galliano, Jacobs, McQueen
On view October 13, 2021 - April 16, 2022
Before instantaneous access to fashion shows via livestreaming and social media, London-based artist Robert Fairer was backstage photographing the designers, models, hair and makeup artists, stylists, and others working in crowded spaces at a frenetic pace moments before the final looks were presented. His intuitive ability to frame the beauty, drama, and energy backstage resulted in stunning images — found in the pages of British Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and eventually American Vogue — that celebrate the creative talents who contribute to the magic of the runway.
