ASHER FELLIG’S invaluable contribution to the art of photography, or scandalous Viji

“My name is Viji. I am the greatest photographer in the world …”

Asher Fellig was born at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries in the town of Zolochev, which at that time belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire. After 11 years, the boy and his family moved to live in New York, where he changed his name to Arthur. The life of an emigrant made the teenager start working at the age of 14.

But this technique does not make it possible to add intentional motion blur to a static frame. Continue reading

STEVEN MAYZEL IN FASHION PHOTOS AND SHE IN IT

One of the most famous commercial photographers of our time, Steven Meisel was born on June 5, 1954 in New York. Since childhood, his eccentricity has become noticeable close. Stephen combined the Anglo-Irish descent of his mother and the Russian-Jewish roots of his father. When he was 3 years old, the family moved to Wisconsin, where he spent his childhood as a future photographer. The boy’s father worked in show business, so Meisel got to know the backstage early.

After graduating from high school, Stephen went to study at the Parsons School of Design as a fashion illustrator. His talent was quickly noticed, and Meisel began his career at the Halston fashion house, and then at Women Wear Daily. Continue reading
