Vanity: Fashion Photography from the F.C. Gundlach Collection
KRAKOW  •  National Museum, Kraków  •  Ongoing

From the mise-en-scčne of dresses to supermodels, Vanity presents about two hundred works from the F.C. Gundlach Collection. Landmark photographs as well as unknown pictures from the late 1920s to the present day testify to the suggestive power of fashion photography between innovation and tradition, consumerism and art. F.C. Gundlach (born 1926), a fashion photographer himself, has assembled one of the most comprehensive private collections of photographs in the germanspeaking world. He has never understood fashion photography as veneer, but seen it as a culture’s form of expression mirroring an era’s zeitgeist and view of man in their outward appearance. 

“Fashion photographs are always interpretations, results from a mise-en-scčne. They reflect and visualize today’s zeitgeist and anticipate that of tomorrow.”

With works by Richard Avedon, Lillian Bassman, Cecil Beaton, Sibylle Bergemann, Erwin Blumenfeld, Guy Bourdin, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Hubs Flöter, Ralph Gibson, F.C. Gundlach, Horst P.
