A Fashionable World of Gritty Realism

Over the last 25 years, Stephanie Pfriender Stylander has created unforgettable images for magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar Uomo, French GlamourInterview, British GQ and made portraits of icons including Keith Richards, Lenny Kravitz, Nicole Kidman, Heath Ledger, and Kate Moss.

The Untamed Eye (MW Editions, September 25, 2018) introduces viewers to Pfriender Stylander’s world of gritty realism. The book brings together over 130 of Pfriender Stylander’s fashion and celebrity photographs from 1990 to 2006 that feature models, musicians, and actors who embody the photographer’s unbridled vision.

Pfriender Stylander writes about shooting in the 1990s: “We were all on the road, there was a fantastic restlessness, we were young and in need of expression. The great fashion and creative directors let you roam, they gave you twenty pages to express your vision – it was a complete creative playground where we could be rebellious, and the word compromise was not spoken, not even thought about.”
