• “Floral Bust Enhancer” by Tanya Marcuse

East coast photographer Tanya Marcuse is not a fashion photographer per se, although some of her projects touch on issues of clothing and the body. Those include Undergarments & Armor, for which she took pictures of items from various costume archives, including the one at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, and Bridal Suite, an exploration of that most iconic of dresses. She’ll talk about her work this Friday as part of the School of the Art Institute Fashion Resource Center’s Behind the Seams lecture series. I asked Marcuse about her work and how it relates to our beliefs and ideas about fashion today.
