CURRENT READING: THREE HUNDRED AND SEVENTEEN AND COUNTING: COVERS FOR VOGUE ITALIA 1988-2009: STEVEN MEISEL : MALLARD JANVIERSubmitted by Wayne on Tue, 2009-06-02 18:50.
"The freedom that Steven Meisel enjoys on Italian Vogue is exceptional , as is the length of the collaboration and its systematic nature, both unprecedented in the field. A quick look at the covers of US Vogue created by Meisel is enough to convince: one sees the same girls but there is no hint of a story nor shadow of a meaning."

'You can't be afraid to suffer. If you're afraid to suffer, you'll never be an artist. Editors used to say "Bob, why are you so difficult?" And I'd say "Listen, I'm not just a photographer -you don't understand -I'm an artist who happens to use a camera. You're not dealing with me right, you're talking to me like I'm some photographer. I don't know how to do what you're asking me to do. I only know how to do what I do. You're making me feel stupid and I'd appreciate if you wouldn't do that."
Bob Richardson in Big #14, 1996.
