Watched a programme on BBC 4 last night called Seven Photographs that Changed Fashion. To quote: "Fashion photographer Rankin recreates seven of his favourite images as he takes a journey through a brief history of the fashion photograph. By re-staging iconic images by Cecil Beaton, Erwin Blumenfeld, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, David Bailey and Guy Bourdin, Rankin exposes the ways in which fashion photography uses fantasy and beauty to communicate something about reality."

Really enjoyed it. As we had a model shoot lined up today, it seemed only sensible to have a go ourselves at recreating one of the shots (a Bailey). Not a bad first attempt even if we do say so ourselves.
