Kirstin Sin­clair How an ex­hi­bi­tion can change your life

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

“After six years of free­lance as­sist­ing I joined a team work­ing at the big cat­walk shows shoot­ing front row and street style, which is when I started mak­ing re­ally im­por­tant con­nec­tions within the fash­ion in­dus­try. This led to more pres­ti­gious com­mis­sions and I even­tu­ally no longer needed to as­sist. Then, in 2011 I helped cu­rate and took part in an ex­hi­bi­tion called ‘Cat­walk to Cover’ at The Fash­ion and Tex­tiles Mu­seum in Lon­don. This re­ally helped get me no­ticed within the in­dus­try and taken much more se­ri­ously.

“The Mu­seum, al­ready a client of mine, of­fered me the ex­hi­bi­tion op­por­tu­nity after see­ing my work from the cat­walk shows and then kindly rec­om­mended me to pub­lish­ing com­pany ACC Edi­tions. This lead to the pub­li­ca­tion of my first book, A Front Row Seat, writ­ten by my­self and specif­i­cally ded­i­cated to eight years of my pho­to­graphs from the cat­walk shows in New York, Mi­lan, Paris and Lon­don.”
