You may not know her name, but chances are you’re already a huge fan of photographer Roxanne Lowit’s work! As one of the first photographers to be allowed backstage during fashion week, Lowit has amassed in three decades, what is arguably one of the most impressive collections of supermodel snapshots of all time— and starting next month, she’s sharing it with the world!
As part of a mini-retrospective from December 12th through January 18th called “Rocanne Lowit: Be Faulous,” 60 of the fashion photographer’s favorite images are set to be displayed at New York’s Steven Kasher gallery, including a number of her most iconic model photos. Seriously, this may just be the Throwback Thursday jackpot!
Included in the collection is of course “Three Models in a Tub,” that infamous photo of Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista giggling in a bath tub, which was taken by Lowit in 1990 at the Versace Couture after party at Paris’ Ritz Hotel.
“I asked the girls to get in the tub,” recalls Lowit. “Sylvester Stallone came into the room and threatened to pour champagne over them, which is why they are squealing in the shot. Afterwards when they got out of the tub, Linda went up to Stallone and pretended to punch him. I got a great shot of that too.”
While she has capture thousands of candid celebrity moments over the years, Lowit admits that her favorite stars to photograph have always been Kate Moss and former Gucci creative director, Tom Ford.
“The exhibition is a collection of my favorite images…I know that many people love the shot of Kate Moss in the white suit and hat at Galliano, people are always asking to have their picture taken with it,” said Lowit.
Looks like her fans may finally get their wish! Look after the jump for a sneak peek at some of the photographer’s greatest supermodel snapshots. Happy Throwback Thursday!
