The Image of Fashion: A Photographer’s Legacy

Opening Reception: 6-8 pm, January 7, 2016

January 4, 2016 – February 26, 2016

Paul W. Hollingshead (1896–1974) studied at the New York Institute of Photography in 1922 and worked for Edward Steichen taking high fashion photos for Vogue and Vanity Fair magazines. In 1928, he returned to California and settled in Woodland in 1932. Upon his death he left an archive of photos to his sons, Bill and Edward Hollingshead, that document changes covering five decades. Experimenting with lighting, background, props, and poses, the photographs capture evolving styles in clothing and fashion as well as the sitter’s preferences from dashing movie star glamor shots to warm, friendly, family photos. Fashions and accessories from the UC Davis Design Collection will be paired with these period photographs, bringing them to life with tangible artifacts.

Reception and Lecture on January 7, 2016 (6-8 P.M.). There will be two talks, the first by Bill Hollingshead, the second by Jo Ann Stabb. Please see the attached flyer for complete details.
