Unseen Vogue

A great book someone gave me in work today as a source of reference for a project - Unseen Vogue: The Secret History of Fashion Photography.

The images collated in the book are all 'rejected' photographs from the magazine Vogue yet they provide a fantastic celebration of fashion photography over the past eighty years or so - a great source for inspiration and a collection of some of the earlier work from the likes of Cecil Beaton and Mario Testino . Anyone with an interest in fashion or photography would enjoy the book purely on the images themselves; however what I found particularly interesting was exploring these images that depicted photographic exploration that was too advanced for it's time - the photography becomes even more fascinating when you consider the context in which it was taken.
