Deborah Turbeville

1055304Deborah Turbeville passed away in 2013, but the fashioned photography who was often called the “anti Helmut Newton” left a large and lasting legacy beginning with the start of her fame in the early 1970s. As a fashion editor for the likes of Harper’s Bazaar and Mademoiselle, Turbeville took moody shots that harked back to an era of classical painting and even daguerreotype, mixing fashion and fine art photography. In an interview posted on Dazed she said:

“I used to take lots of Polaroids when I worked. They were just sketches of the later photographs, but I always kept them in a drawer or a box for a long time after. I liked the interesting things that happened to them, how spontaneous they looked with time. I don’t really destroy my images on purpose or try to manipulate them too much – these things just happen on their own.”
