Glen Luchford


Glen Luchford Prada 96-98

Idea

Designed by Ezra Petronio and published by IDEA, Luchford’s latest book features the era-defining images from the ’90s campaigns he collaborated on with Miuccia Prada.

The 116-page hardback includes an exclusive interview by Lou Stoppard on Luchford’s influence on the fashion world.

When asked why he decided to publish the images as a book, Luchford said: “One of the reasons is that almost every day someone has tagged me in one of these pictures on Instagram. I realised that they were being circulated the whole time. Why? I’m honestly not sure. There’s something about them that people want to go back, revisit and keep looking at — through the lighting there’s a seductive quality, an atmosphere there. It was a winning combination where all the elements came together: right clothes, right model, right concept.”

The book, which was designed by Christopher Simmonds, features 164 photographs, half of which are lighting test images of Jack, who has been working with Glen since the nineties and is his right-hand man on shoots; the other half are of models from Kate Moss, to Amber Valetta in the exact same scenes.

“It’s a book about love.” – Glen Luchford.
