When a fashion photographer comes to dominate the marketplace, the constancy and ubiquity of the imagery sometimes causes you to lose historical perspective on the work. In Steven Meisel's case that issue is being perfectly corrected with Phillip's "Role Play" exhibition tour.

"I believe in maniacs. I believe in type As. I believe that you’ve got to love your work so much that it is all you want to do. I believe you must betray your mistress for your work, you betray your wife for your work; I believe that she must betray you for her work. I believe that work is the one thing in the world that never betrays you, that lasts. If I were going to be a politician, if I were going to be a scientist, I would do it every day. I wouldn’t wait for Monday. I don’t believe in weekends.
If you’re headed for a life that’s only involved with making money and that you hope for satisfaction somewhere else, you’re headed for a lot of trouble. And whatever replaces vodka when you’re 45 is what you’re going to be doing."
- Richard Avedon - 1988
