This post was originally published on this site

Born in 1954, Steven Meisel became arguably the most important and prolific fashion photographer of his generation.

Known for his visionary, striking and provocative fashion visuals, Meisel was a passionate since a fragile age, turning a childhood obsession with fashion illustration into such a fine photographic talent that only a chosen few can stand shoulder to shoulder next to Steven in the fashion department.

Working mostly for both Italian and US version of Vogue, Meisel discovered and popularized a number of influential supermodels, makeup artists and designers, including such names as Ross Van Der Heide, Naomi Campbell, François Nars, Christy Turlington, Laura Mercier and Linda Evangelista. It should also be noted that Steven’s work with Madonna is one of the brightest moments of this photographer’s career.

In an editorial for US Vogue in 2001, Steven Meisel photographed models inspired by great rock icons.
