Body of Work

Bespoke - - OMG! -

Re­cruited at the ten­der age of 15, Naomi Camp­bell ended up as one of the six most suc­cess­ful mod­els of her gen­er­a­tion; women who dom­i­nated the modelling world in the late 1980s and 90s, and who at­tained the rank of su­per­model for the very first time. Also, thanks to her inim­itable looks, strength, and spirit, she be­came the first black model to ever make the cover of French Vogue and Time, and has been the face of hun­dreds of mag­a­zine cov­ers, ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paigns, and a favourite sub­ject for some of the most renowned pho­tog­ra­phers. Even now at the age of 47, she con­tin­ues to work, some­times on the run­way, but more usu­ally in cam­paigns, while stay­ing true to her­self and her in­volve­ment in many char­i­ta­ble causes. So, to cel­e­brate her re­mark­able ca­reer, Taschen spent seven-and-a-half years mak­ing this 2,445 USD two-vol­ume col­lec­tor’s edi­tion book that’s signed by Camp­bell her­self and lim­ited to 1,000 copies. Vol.1 even fea­tures an art­work cover by Bri­tish pop art lu­mi­nary Allen Jones that he says “doesn’t at­tempt to il­lus­trate Naomi, but to en­cap­su­late her.”
