It’s been a while since we’ve seen a fashion shoot make a strong social or political statement; and isn’t it always Steven Meisel who’s bold enough to take the risk?

For fashion Meisel’s photos don’t give you much to take away, but as art the imagery is poignant and intense. And we like to occasionally be reminded that it’s possible for fashion photography to be so.
