Steven Meisel was born in New York in 1954 and studied at the Parsons School of Design. Prolific and innovative, Meisel has shaped important trends in fashion for more than twenty years through major advertising campaigns for Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, and Versace, among others.
Meisel’s photographs have appeared on every cover and lead editorial story of every issue of Vogue Italia. He is a primary photographer for both the American and Italian editions of the magazine.
Meisel has produced several books, including Herb Ritts: Work; Dolce & Gabbana: Animal, Rock and Royalty (Tiny Folios Series); and Steven Meisel, but is perhaps best known for his 1992 collaboration with Madonna on the controversial coffee-table book Sex.
I personally love his work, and you?
