Vogue: Like a Painting by Lucy Davies

Taken by some of the most prominent photographers of the last decade, the pictures included in the book show clever use of devices commonly applied by painters: theatrical settings, compositional schemes and an emphasis on the womans’ figures and poses. These technical applications account for a beautiful collection of images that blur the lines between fashion photography and art.
