Backstage at Galliano

Backstage at Galliano

Photos by Mark Leibowitz.

Today we present seven psychedelic fashion photos from photographer Mark Leibowitz’s current “Backstage at Galliano” exhibit, which opened as a private event April 25 in downtown Manhattan. The show includes 17 limited-edition prints created backstage at John Galliano’s fall-winter ’08 and spring-summer ’09 ready-to-wear shows in Paris.

“Cramped quarters, poor lighting, and a frantic atmosphere became my invitation to deconstruct the pandemonium revealing elegance and grace,” Leibowitz writes in the exhibit description. “During the shows I remained still while the variety of colors and layers in these images evolved past the lens in seemingly choreographed procession.” Leibowitz wouldn’t reveal how the images shown here were made… but more will be released in additional cities (including Los Angeles, San Francisco and London). A portion of the print sales will benefit the African Millennium Foundation and B Lab. Please visit www.leibowitzbackstage.com for more information.

  1. What a stupid and thoughtless comment by Pat McHugh. He knows he could never do beautiful work like Mark Leibowitz, so he chooses to be jealous, petty and negative.

  2. Dear Mr Michael Smith..

    i think Mr. Mchugh was being comical.

    i suggest Mr Michael Smith… you lie down and take a tablet… ease yourself into a smile and enjooy life… At least your not Annie Leib… poor darling..

  3. These images are breathtaking, the beauty of the colors, the movement incorporates the element of time flying by in a second, I practically hear the noise of the models hurrying backstage, talking, getting ready… Amazing work Mark Leibowitz, inspirational, a different approach, a different eye, bravo.

  4. Actually the pictures suck. I guess once you are famous you can show any random picture and people will say they love it just to hide their lack of guts to say the truth.
