A se­lec­tion from the ar­chi­ve

VOGUE (Italy) - - TABLE OF CONTENTS - By Ro­bin Muir

The f ir­st edi­tion of L’Uo­mo Vo­gue ap­pea­red in the spring of 1968, a ti­me of po­li­ti­cal tur­moil for Eu­ro­pe. Pe­rhaps not the ideal ti­me for a ma­ga­zi­ne tied to lu­xu­ry and fa­shion and la dol­ce vi­ta, but it was an in­stant hit. Over the la­st f if­ty years it has ac­ted as a cul­tu­ral ba­ro­me­ter of our ti­mes with a com­mit­ment to vi­sual ge­nius, an in­vest­ment in great wri­ting and a di­scri­mi­na­ting, op­ti­mi­stic edi­to­rial eye. He­re are f ive f igu­res by f ive great pho­to­gra­phers who seem to us to sum up the in­ter­ve­ning years. We could ha­ve cho­sen hun­dreds mo­re. ( May­be we will)
