Photographer uses her lens to depict Muslim women as ‘powerful presences in their own right’

Lalla Essaydi is an artist originally from Morocco whose experiences have inspired her to create politically astute work that deconstructs and reimagines stereotypes of Muslim womanhood.

“My work is highly autobiographical,” Essaydi said. “In it, I speak my thoughts and talk directly about my experiences as a woman and an artist, finding the language with which to speak from those uncertain zones between memory and the present, East and West.

“The models I use are often women who have had the same relation to the physical spaces as I’ve had. But we also work with younger women so that the setting becomes a platform for the creation of new memories and understandings.”

Holden Luntz Gallery : The Telling of Fashion : Trailblazers of Photography

Contrary to popular belief, what was cool today may still be cool tomorrow, especially in fashion. However, that all depends on who took the picture and what the image is of, naturally.

From its inception, fashion photography has consistently operated as a cultural tool. Borrowing ideas and inspiration from the art world in the 1920s to thriving on social media campaigns today, fashion photography has continually redefined itself to serve the needs of the times. In its power and agency as a harbinger of taste, fashion photography not only presents us with ways of seeing and remembering each passing epoch, but it also expands and commercializes its most popular themes. The art form, which the photographers who shot fashion would collectively create, introduced new and subtle modes of expression, influenced by the classical norms of the past, the commercial success of the industry, and the aesthetic liberties of pursuing self-expression.
