Informed by her parallel paths as an artist and a photographer, Brigitte Niedermair expands the conventions and biases of the fashion image system. Her work focuses on representations of women s bodies in art and culture, with deeply constructed images and striking compositions that make for a distinctive style. This volume explores the remarkable relationship between Dior and Niedermair s aesthetic, resulting in photographs radiating a strong sense of unconventional femininity. The first section is devoted to the collaboration throughout the recent years, followed by a portfolio of exclusive images of historical and iconic Christian Dior creations. Captured with an analogic, classical technique in a five-by-four-inch format which was used during photography s early beginnings 42 pieces from Dior archives are photographed twice, with each version of the image offering a unique perspective and revealing hidden details, such as the construction of the designs. With the principal essay by Olivier Gabet and contributions by Dior s creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, and artists and friends of Niedermair, this beautifully crafted book offers an extraordinary look into one of today s most fascinating creatives.
