STEVEN MEISEL - THE "GODFATHER" OF PHOTOGRAPHY
The word iconic doesn't even cover photographer Steven Meisel's status in the fashion world. He's a legend; a slightly mysterious, super-talented legend. He's launched a thousand models' careers via his work (Naomi Campbell, Carolyn Murphy, Linda Evangelista, Liya Kebede, Coco Rocha, Amber Valletta, Stella Tennant, Agyness Deyn and the list goes on...) especially the covers he's shot for Italian Vogue.
He's also been one of Madonna's most significant image makers and a consummate industry tastemaker. Madonna once said that he was the first person who introduced her to the idea of reinvention.
