“This series of photographs was taken in collaboration with Mr. Beene between 1988 and 1995,” Guzman’s Connie Hansen tells Rosen. “Many of these images appeared in the press kits that accompanied his spring/fall fashion shows and a select few were also used as advertisements. A number have also appeared in subsequent publications, monographs and museum retrospectives of his life and work. Viewed collectively, this series of photographs not only reveals the evolution of Geoffrey Beene’s designs during that period, but also sets forth a visual narrative that endeavors to evoke, rather than define, the spirit of his work.

“Looking at these photographs now,” she continues, “one could easily overlook the fact that they were taken over a seven-year period. Technically, the camera, choice of film, and lighting were essentially the same for each session. Very few props or accessories were used and, apart from the substitution of dress forms for the spring 1989 collection, very little changed. Consequently, each photo session developed into a continuation of the previous photo session. And although continuity was not the primary objective, this approach, and the narrow parameters that it provided, helped to create this unique context for his work to be seen.”

Art Streiber on photographing pro basketball player Angel McCoughtry for ESPN The Magazine’s 2014 Body Issue

Art Streiber recently photographed pro basketball player Angel McCoughtry, the 6-foot-1-inch forward for the WNBA team the Atlanta Dream, for ESPN The Magazine‘s 2014 Body Issue.

“The Body Issue is the magazine’s annual homage to the outrageously perfected anatomy of America’s professional athletes,” he explains. “For this year’s issue, I was fortunate to spend a few hours with Angel McCoughtry.

“Set designer Tim Barrett of Atlanta had built us an all-silver basketball court: the floors, walls, backboard, and ball were all a reflective, metallic silver,” Art continues. “We lit Angel with hard strobe sources in order to show off her incredible musculature, and Nancy Weisman, the senior deputy photo editor at ESPN The Magazine, gave Angel a few pointers on how to fly through the air and hide the parts of her body that can’t be seen in the magazine.”

He adds, “Angel was a bit nervous initially, but after about five minutes she started soaring across the court completely nude and mostly uninhibited.”
