Cathleen Naundorf Paris Photo 2016

Fine art, haute couture photographer Cathleen Naundorf holds a privileged position within the world of fashion and photography as one the few photographers granted access into the ateliers of the most renowned designers in the industry including Jean-Paul Gaultier, Karl Lagerfeld, Valentino, Elie Saab, Christian Lacroix, Versace, Armani and more... Born in Germany and mentored by the iconic Horst P. Horst, Naundorf can be compared to legends like Richard Avedon and Irving Penn, all the while pioneering her way through a unique artistic genre combining fine art photography, haute couture designs, and multi-disciplinary polaroid meets painterly aesthetics that reveal a timeless world of whimsy where past and present come together in the making of her singular vision of haute couture and photographic art.

We have the privilege to present a selection of her work, courtesy of Hamiltons Gallery, which were displayed at the Grand Palais for Paris Photo 2016. In addition to her exhibition accolades, this year alone, Naundorf was invited to speak at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in "Cathleen Naundorf in Conversation" during which she spoke about her long-standing friendship with Horst P. Horst, her earliest influences, and her spectacular two-decade spanning career working with couture houses.

In addition, Naundorf won the American Photography Award 2016, with the following photograph of Dior Haute Couture published for the American Express Departures Magazine:
