Groundbreaking photographer Gleb Derujinsky (1925–2011) invigorated the fashion industry with his glamorous, exotic, and often unconventional photographs. His career as a fashion photographer took off in the golden age of haute couture, when Balenciaga and Pierre Balmain were at the top of their game, and Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld were designing their first runway shows. Although air travel was still reserved for the lucky few, Derujinsky convinced his editors to send him around the world to photograph beautiful models draped in expensive gowns juxtaposed against rough desert dunes or glittering ocean sunsets. His ideas were revolutionary and gave rise to the mystique and glamour that are now pervasive in fashion.
His photographs appeared in major lifestyle magazines and extensively in Harper’s Bazaar from 1950 to 1970, and CAPTURING FASHION: DERUJINSKY is the first monograph to celebrate his significant contributions to the history of fashion and photography.
Gleb Derujinsky also worked for Esquire, Look, Life, Glamour, Town and Country, and The New York Times Magazine. His daughter Andrea Derujinsky, who will be attending the event, is an artist, jewelry designer, and archivist for the Derujinsky estate.
