Phillips presents the touring Steven Meisel auction and exhibition

Entitled 'Role-play', a new auction concept is celebrating the groundbreaking work of internationally acclaimed photographer Steven Meisel is serving as a travelling/selling exhibition.
From his early days as an illustrator for Women's Wear Daily, Meisel captured the 80s zeitgeist in his signature bold and pioneering style.
A true visionary, Meisel has continued to cultivate his eye with the passing decades, continuously redefining the aesthetics in fashion photography, and over the course of his illustrious career, Meisel has collaborated with major fashion publications, from Vanity Fair to Interview, W Magazine, Vogue, and Vogue Italia, for whom he has photographed every cover for the past twenty-five years.
His imagery is rich in narrative, and draws from an encyclopedic knowledge of fashion history. With an informed nod to the past, Meisel's photographs continue to lead the ever-evolving dialogue in fashion photography.
