Los Angeles – On Thursday night, The Rooftop Sessions at Siren Studios presented The New York Times Fashion Week Photo Diary by photographer, Eric Ray Davidson and hosted by Jessica Joffe. Some of Mr. Davidson’s photographs include Kanye leaving Proenza, a kiss between Tommy Hilfiger and model, Jessica Stam, backstage at Calvin Klein, and the Alexander Wang runway. In addition, he also focuses on many of the models in their natural states, from the model’s eating, to riding their bikes in the rain, to changing backstage. The exhibition showcases the runway, the models, backstage, and the ironies and subtleties that make fashion week what it is.
As The New York Times Style Magazine’s Photo Editor, Judith Puckett-Rinella comments, “Eric Ray Davidson’s behind-the-scenes fashion show photographs are wonderfully compelling, striking a new chord that resonates both with the surreal nature of the back stage madness and the very business of the pure, raw details that make it all come together. In them midst of the mayhem, he manages to keep a clear elegant perspective in which he sheds the most provocatively beautiful light on his subjects all the while creating a winning body of work that you can’t take your eyes off of.”
Mr. Davidson is a monthly contributor to GQ, Details, and Elle Magazine.
