Allure Fotografien aus der Collection Susanne von Meiss

"Allure is something that does exist. "Allure holds you...whether its a gaze or a glance in the street or a face in a crowd...it pervades...you are captured by it." Diana Vreeland, Fashion journalist Two vintage photographs by Richard Avedon from the 1950s were the initial inspiration for the Susanne von Meiss Collection. For 25 years now, the Swiss journalist, publicist and entrepreneur has been collecting photography with the special focus on "allure". The Susanne von Meiss Collection representatively covers all genres and styles in the history of photography — from the 1920s through to the present. It includes works by internationally renowned photographers, however for the main part it does not give preference to the iconic photographs but rather to unknown classics. The personal selection ranges from Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Rene Burri and Henri Cartier-Bresson through Horst P. Horst, Irving Penn, Paolo Roversi and August Sander to contemporary artists such as Tracey Emin, Nan Goldin, Daido Moriyama, Richard Prince and Juergen Teller. The collection will be presented to the public for the first time at C/O Berlin.
