Fashion Eye Silk Road
Kishin Shinoyama was born in Tokyo and found fame through his celebrated 1968 compendium 28 Girls, which altered perceptions of the female form. He is also well known for his work for large fashion houses and magazines, as well as his portraits, including a collection of photographs of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Shinoyama's joy at capturing a slice of eternity motivates him to add to his varied body of work.
The House's Fashion Eye collection took its inspiration from Louis Vuitton's travel heritage. It shows cities, regions and countries from the point of view of fashion photographers, from burgeoning talents to industry stalwarts. Each publication displays a selection of large-scale photographs, a short biography and an interview with or essay by the photographer. This third collection, following the Louis Vuitton City Guides and Travel Books, presents travel photography seen through the prism of fashion. Images of beautiful cities, distant lands and fantasy destinations are infused with the distinctive style of their photographer.
