The name Phyllis Posnick is synonymous with Vogue and the extraordinary fashion and beauty editorials the magazine’s audience loves. Posnick is best known for creating photo editorials to illustrate the magazine’s Beauty and Health articles, as well as iconic portraits of celebrated personalities. Bringing together the provocative and sometimes shocking, this collection invites readers to glimpse the complex production process – and the collaboration and creativity – behind each extraordinary editorial.
The book features images by a who’s who of legendary photographers: Anton Corbijn, Patrick Demarchelier, Steven Klein, Annie Leibovitz, Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, Mario Testino, Tim Walker, and Bruce Weber. The book includes a foreword by Anna Wintour and is punctuated with Posnick’s personal memories and irreverence.
