The art of collaboration


Location: Winfield Hall, Woolworth Estate, Long Island
The Spring/Summer 2006 collection was an unabashed celebration of beauty. The overall mood was innocent, open, and feminine. The clothes were marked by a purity of line and an exuberance of colour, detail, and delicacy. Stephen Shore, who pioneered the use of colour in art photography, worked with Tomas Maier to shoot the campaign at the Woolworth Estate in Long Island, NY. The pictures offer rich tableaux combining tradition, passion and sophistication. Shore’s portrayal of light, space and experience lend to the campaign a sense of anticipation and intrigue that underscores the ultimately private way we experience beauty.
