Venetia Scott – Fragile Face Lay Flat

Venetia Scott, photographer and Contributing Fashion Director of British Vogue, started her career by styling and creating images with some of the most iconic names in fashion – Juergen Teller, Helmut Newton and Mario Sorrenti, to name a few. Now an icon of the industry herself, her portfolio boasts an extensive list of contributions and campaigns to some of the biggest names in fashion, including APC, Margaret Howell, AnOther and British Vogue. 

Fragile Face Lay Flat (Venetia Scott and Sion and Moore, 2019) presents around 30 images taken by Scott during the last 12 years, shown in a different perspective from that of their original context; all of the photographs have been cropped to show only the models’ faces, creating a newfound sense of intimacy between the viewer and the subject. The result is a raw, real and personal experience for anyone delving into Scott’s photographic practice.
