Behind the scenes: Benjamin Lowy’s Fashion Week

Ben Lowy - Fashionweek / Lensblog: Behind the Scenes

At the helm this year of New York magazine’s annual New York Look fashion week special issue, photographed in the past by Paolo Pellegrin (or here) and Christopher Anderson, was VII Network’s Benjamin Lowy. The pictures are worth a look, even if you’re getting a bit tired, as I am, of the behind-the-scenes fashion show genre of photography. Regardless, be sure to check out the short interview with Benjamin Lowy on the NYT Lens Blog. It’s a behind-the-scenes of the behind-the-scenes look at Fashion Week, and covers topics from Lowy’s connection to Iraq to the disconnect between witnessing a suicide bombing and then getting a call from a photo editor to shoot fashion pictures to the changing nature of the photographer’s job to Lowy’s tendency to bring shoot in different styles depending on the assignment.
