EXHIBITION: WHEN YOU’RE A BOY

Galliano’s Warriors, photographed by Nick Knight, styled by Simon Foxton. Published in Arena Homme Plus, Summer/Autumn 2007

17 July – 4 October 2009

Brittish super stylist Simon Foxton, styles the exhibition that celebrates men in fashion photography.

Foxton whose career spans the last three decades, has been capturing the spirit and energy of menswear in some of the most memorable fashion moments.

Foxton (UK, b.1961) is a leading image-maker of men’s fashion, who has anticipated and defined key shifts in menswear design since the early 1980s. Capturing menswear’s spirit and energy in some of the most memorable fashion photographs of the period, he questions definitions of masculinity, national identity and taste. Historic portrait iconography and classic English men’s tailoring are combined with contemporary sportswear design, street fashion and references to gay subcultures to produce sophisticated and innovative fashion images for a range of brands and magazines.

Showcasing Foxton’s work with photographers like Nick Knight, Jason Evans, Alasdair Mclellan and David Sims to name a few, this exhibition is set to challenge our imagery of masculinity.
