With New York Fashion Week around the corner, our feeds are about to be inundated with photos of models on the runway, off the runway, not to mention legions of leggy denizens from the street-style set—this feature isn't about those kinds of fashion snapshots, and refreshingly so. Photographer Stephanie Pfriender Stylander
captures the sort of images that linger long on the mind. Her photographs, which feature a Who's Who of icons dating back to the Nineties, carry a certain cinematic allure, striking the balance between glamour and grit. We're obsessed. Here, she takes us behind the scenes of some of her more memorable shots. To see the full breadth of her incredible oeuvre, check out her recent monograph The Untamed Eye
Kate Moss, "The Untamed Eye," 1992 for Harper’s Bazaar Uomo
"I was looking for a model who was unknown, unusual, special, more like an actress. I went to a modeling agency, and they happened to had just received faxes of a new girl from their London agency—"a unique type of girl, cool, petite, something different, special, really something.” That was it; Kate was what I was looking for. I liked how she didn’t look like a model and how her eyes (even though it was a fax photo) spoke to the camera."
