inspiration for shooting half-naked models? yes. inspiration for that.

i think there is only so much intimacy you can capture with color. i think the finer emotions and hidden undertones in a photograph can only be revealed in black and white. i think the proximity to your subject becomes closer and the photograph becomes more transparent and eye to eye in black and white.

vogue italy july 1995
model: amber valleta
photographer: steven meisel

certainly one of my favorite black and white editorials. these will be an inspiration for many years to come.
