Fashion press photos include a wide variety of photographs sent to or made by the newspapers, magazines and other press organizations. Press photos were often made by fashion labels, companies and agencies to promote their products.
The postcard-sized photo shown here is a rare 1997 digital press photo from a European agency. It reproduces a famous image of the Canadian model Linda Evangelista shot by Brooklyn photographer Sante D'Orazio. As you can see, the image is a bit washed out, but still striking. The back has D'Orazio's stamp and signature.
