Lot Essay

This print is number one from the edition of 1/1 + 1AP.

Bond has been fascinated since his very beginnings as a photographer by the atmosphere and picture possibilities of the frenzied moments backstage at fashion shows. A feature published in The Independent Magazine on 26th October 1996, when he had just graduated from St Martin's College of Art, demonstrated his precocious skill in this area. The present image captures star model Gisele Bündchen backstage at a Victoria's Secret show -- a context of high-fashion erotica with a Latin American carnival twist perfectly expressed by Bond's glamorous subject.
