Gloss: The Work of Chris von Wangenheim by Mauricio Padilha and Roger Padilha

Notorious photographer Chris von Wangenheim illustrated the glamour of the 1970s and reflected the dark underworld of the fashion industry. He shocked the world with a portfolio of work that explored, sex, violence and danger in the domain of high fashion.

Gloss, the first monograph to reflect on von Wangenheim’s career, consists of over 200 provocative and iconic images from this era, including unpublished outtakes from shoots with supermodels such as Christie Brinkley and Lisa Taylor.
