Anne Menke has traveled the world on assignment for the likes of Vogue, Elle, Marie Claire, Conde Nast Traveller, usually in search of the perfect environment to shoot a fashion spread. She has discovered that these environments themselves are the origins of much of the fashion we see on the runways today and has compiled an incredible record of people and places with that in mind. Texts by colleague luminaries Tommy Hilfiger, Julia Chaplin and Andrew Niccol, in addition to the author’s own introduction, explain where fashion meets culture in ethnic populations in Latin America, Europe, Asia and North America, in this unique, sensitive, and insightful work that itself is the perfect intersection of art and fashion photography. This photographic diary of cultural identities around the world show a story that is lost in translation amongst the impending threat of globalization.
