Look: Portraits from Backstage at Olympus Fashion Week

by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders (Photographer)




Look: Portraits Backstage at Olympus Fashion Week features exclusive portraits of the many boldface names who come together under the tents in Bryant Park each season for New York’s biannual Olympus Fashion Week. Designers, models, journalists, industry insiders, and front-row celebrities are among the A-listers who appear in Look. All portraits were shot backstage at Bryant Park during the three previous Olympus Fashion Week seasons—February 05, September 05, and February 06.

Over the course of these three seasons, Greenfield-Sanders has photographed more than 200 famous faces in his unique and intimate portrait style. Most of these images are being seen for the first time with the publication of Look.

Among the boldface names featured are: Paula Abdul, Naomi Campbell, Patricia Clarkson, Kenneth Cole, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Courteney Cox Arquette, Claire Danes, Rosario Dawson, Oscar de la Renta, Hilary Duff, Anne Hathaway, Carolina Herrera, Tommy Hilfiger, Betsey Johnson, Heidi Klum, Beyoncé Knowles, Michael Kors, Jason Lewis, Lindsay Lohan, Eva Longoria, André Leon Talley and many more.

Essays from several fashion and media notables are also included in the book. These original writings offer an insider’s perspective of Fashion Week along with commentary about fashion as pop culture. Essays appear from: CBS Evening News anchor and managing editor Katie Couric, actor Alec Baldwin, designers Zac Posen and Heatherette, PEOPLE Group editor Martha Nelson, pop culture columnist Simon Dumenco, IMG Fashion Vice President and NY Fashion Week originator Fern Mallis, dandy Patrick McDonald, and socialite Tinsley Mortimer.

Look provides unique insights into the wide ranging personalities, from every industry and walk of life, who assemble for Fashion Week,” said Greenfield-Sanders. “Where else would you find Beyoncé, Salman Rushdie, and Jenna Jameson all under the same roof – or in this case, the same tent? Look lets me share the experience of photographing the amazing talents who attend Olympus Fashion Week.”
