The date on this interview is Jan 28, so somehow I missed it, but nonetheless a good one with the 60 year old Meisel. Above self portrait from 2014.
The prolific fashion lensman discusses his iconic images of supermodels Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Amber Valetta, timed to the opening of his exhibition ‘Role Play’ at Phillips in New York City
Tim Blanks: Your selection of images for the Phillips show seems to be a concise career overview. Is that how you saw it?
Steven Meisel: It wasn’t just my decision. I would have pushed it further, to be honest. They had first given me a selection, then we went back and forth. It was a compromise.
I would hope my sense of humor is obvious in everything. I don’t consider myself just a fashion photographer. It’s more than that. I’m also a very funny person, and I have a good sense of humor. And I hope people see that.
