Summary

A celebration of identity and individual human beauty, this vibrant monograph is the first book dedicated to fashion photographer Nadine Ijewere--the first Black woman photographer to land a cover of Vogue in the magazine's 125-year history.

Dazzling color, dreamlike backgrounds, and a fierce gaze are the hallmarks of Ijewere's work. But most important to the London photographer is subversion of traditional concepts of beauty. In fashion work, editorials, advertisements, and film stills, Ijewere draws not only on her roots in Nigeria and Jamaica, but also on her own experiences as a young Black girl in East London whose skin color, hair, and body type were nowhere to be found in the pages of magazines. Ijewere's vibrantly colored, brilliantly staged pictures often focus on themes of identity and diversity, and feature nontraditional subjects that celebrate the uniqueness of disparate cultures. The first monograph includes images from her series of Jamaican women's hairstyles across different generations; photographs of young people defying gender norms on the streets of Lagos; and intimate studio portraits of mixed-race sisters. Also featured is editorial work she has created for Vogue in the US and UK, fashion shoots for Stella McCartney, Dior, Gap, Hermes, and Valentino; and stills from short films. At the vanguard of a history-changing artistic movement, Ijewere's remarkable career has made her one of the most sought-after fashion photographers working today.
