Industry-to-Industry: A Thank You Note to Photography

Today in history -  year 1888 -  George Eastmen received the patent for his “roll-film” box camera which he named “Kodak”.   Hence was the birth of amateur snapshot photography.

I bear the proposition that fashion would not be where it is today without photography.

The globalization of the world and fashion today can be attributed in part to this past-time that has become so integrated into our lives.  It has become our citizen duty to point, snap and shoot the situations happening around us.  Fashion is symbol of the era and often times the object of attention.  It is because of the snapshot photography that we can live moments like Truman Capote’s 1966 Black and White Gala, or the beautiful Bianca Jagger’s white horse entrance to her 1977 30th birthday, or the 1991 Versace runway storm by model legends Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington.    

Thank you Mr. Eastmen for giving us a vehicle to create universal understanding of one another and our medium of expression- fashion.
