Peter Fetterman exhibits Norman Parkinson in Santa Monica


Fashion, by definition, is the predominant style of a particular time and place [1] , an entity that provides posterity with a window into cultural values both past and present. Thanks to the pioneering works of fashion photographers such as George Hoyningen-Huene, Lillian Bassman, and William Klein, fashion has been preserved through the ages and continues to influence the world around us.

To honor the history of fashion photography, Peter Fetterman Gallery proudly presents The Fashion Show, an exciting display of elegance and artistic talent created through the lens of a camera. Fashion as we know it—a collaboration of designers, brands, models, and consumers—has been transformed into an artform because of photography. This exhibition, curated from the gallery’s permanent collection, features a phenomenal range of artists who helped solidify fashion’s importance—photographers such as Norman Parkinson, Frances McLaughlin-Gill, Horst P. Horst, Karen Radkai, and Brian Duffy, to name a few.

The influential fashion photographers on view transcended their commercial roles to create unique artworks of dazzling creative expression. Each artist’s individual style speaks volumes. And many of them still remain ahead of their time, even to contemporary viewers.
