Louise Dahl-Wolfe: A Style of Her Own is the first-ever exhibition of this pioneering American photographer to be held in the UK. To mark the special occasion we have arranged for the Museum team to give you a private presentation before the retrospective opens to the public.
A pioneer of modern fashion photography, Louise Dahl-Wolfe A Style of Her Own presents over 100 works highlighting how Dahl-Wolfe (1895–1989) defined the image of the modern, independent woman. One of the most important women photographers of the 20th century. Her work in the thirties, forties and fifties brought an informal and contemporary approach to fashion that had enormous influence on Richard Avedon, Irving Penn and the other great photographers who followed. A uniquely American artist, this is the first major survey of her work in the UK and coincides with a resurgence of interest in female photographers.
The presentation starts at 1pm in the Fashion Studio and lasts for approximately one hour including an opportunity to ask questions. Ticket includes admission to the exhibition and guests are welcome to view this before or after the talk.
