This beautifully produced book features intimate, never-before-published portraits of a young and undiscovered Kate Moss, taken in the early 1990s by her then-boyfriend, Italian photographer Mario Sorrenti. Seen by Calvin Klein, the photographs gave life to the famous 'Obsession' campaign, which launched Moss to international success and established Sorrenti as a leading fashion photographer.
Sumptuously reproduced in tritone and presented in a cloth-covered clamshell box, Kate is a stunning photographic portfolio featuring intimate portraits of the young supermodel. It includes tipped-on images on the book and clamshell box's covers, plus an introductory essay by Sorrenti, which puts the work in its uniquely personal context.
This book which comes with a signed print, celebrates the dawn of two legendary careers, and the start of the highly influential aesthetic of 1990s fashion photography.
