Style: Photographer Mark Borthwick Celebrates Not in Fashion

March 25, 2009


There's little that stands between Mark Borthwick's family snapshots and the fashion photography for which he's become famous. His new book Not in Fashion (Rizzoli) has a personal scrapbook feel to it, not just because there's handwritten scribblings, newspaper cuttings and poetry, but also because all of images have an inherently intimate quality about them—whether it's a soft flash of Jane Birkin's eyes in a rearview mirror, Chloe Sevigny playing dress-up on Brighton Beach or just a group of Borthwick's friends larking around in his backyard. A celebration and book-signing happens this Thursday evening at The Journal Gallery in Brooklyn.
