Imperfect Beauty by Charlotte Cotton (2000). Published to coincide with an exhibition in the Canon Photography Gallery at the V&A, this book looks at the work of key British photographers, art directors and stylists who changed the face of fashion photography in the 1990s.
The images, chosen by the photographers themselves, demonstrate how, during the early 1990s, British photographers, stylists and art directors ruptured the style of fashion photography by using ordinary domestic locations, second-hand clothing and unconventionally looking models. Quickly labelled "grunge photography", this became the new fashion imagery of the decade.
