Fashion Photographers: The Most Investment-Worthy Photography for Your Home
Fashion photography is one of the most compelling vehicles in capturing the zeitgeist of a moment along with some of the most mesmerizing talents of our time. Fashion photographers, who are integral to practically any advertising campaign, magazines, and more, are unique in that their collective eye is trained to capture the drama and magnitude of a cultural moment. Here, we have an exclusive edit of some of the top fashion photographers — from Marco Glaviano to Terry O’Neill — who are legendary trailblazers in their field, in addition to some of the most exclusive pieces of fashion photography from London’s premiere Little Black Gallery. Below, you’ll find a carefully-curated edit of the most coveted and investment-worthy pieces to incorporate into your home interiors.
Marco Glaviano, one of the industry’s most renowned Italian fashion photographers, is widely known for his iconic images of some of the biggest supermodels of our time. During the late 1960s, Glaviano made the decision to pursue photography as a career, and moved to New York City. Throughout the 1970s, he worked for Vogue and then Harper’s Bazaar magazines, all the while cementing worldwide status as one of the leading fashion photographers of his time. Consider everything from an ultra-rare 1987 Paulina Porizkova Mickey Mouse Framed Print, shot in Anguilla — one of a rare edition of 25 prints — to an Eva Herzigova Framed Print that calls on bright hues and silky patterns to make the image — a limited edition of 7 — come to life. Glavian’s work is so valuable because it strikes the perfect balance between apropos references to historical pop culture, fashion, and art, making his work a timeless and collectible addition to any home.
Credited with being one of the first fashion photographers to shoot The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Terry O’Neill rose to stardom by chronicling the emerging faces of film, fashion, and music who defined the freewheeling 1960’s era in London. Actress Raquel Welch was one of O’Neill’s muses, thanks to her hyper-glamorous look and celebrated film career, a combination that cemented her icon status for decades. One of Welch’s standout performances was her portrayal of a strong female character that contested established female versus male archetypes in Hollywood. The photographer’s Raquel Welch on a Cross directly reflects the star’s personification of the complexity inherent in modern women and perceived sex symbols. Other images in this exclusive edit include a signed black-and-white Bridgette Bardot and Sean Connery print — another hallmark of the O’Neill’s access to Hollywood legends and tastemakers.

The Little Black Gallery in London “operates as a photography gallery, artist management, and art consultancy” and specializes in contemporary photography. Originally set up by Tamara Beckwith Veroni, Lindsey Carlos Clarke, and Ghislain Pascal in 2008, it is also home to the Estate of legendary fashion photographer, Bob Carlos Clarke, and has a permanent room dedicated to his work. Over the years, it has refined its business model to work exclusively with only a handful of photographers, including Anja Niemi, Bob Carlos Clarke, Tyler Udall, Mike Figgis, and Alistair Taylor-Young. However, they still maintain a wider roster of fashion photographers like Terry O’Neill. Here is their rarified collection of some of the most directional and investment-worthy fashion photography available on the market today.
