Arthur Elgort

Arthur Elgort

Arthur Elgort is one of the world’s top fashion photographers and a lover of fashion, ballet and music.
He never goes anywhere without his cameras; his favorites are Leicas, Linhofs and Rollies. He loves to shoot fashion because it is historical, ceremonial and ritualistic; the same reasons he loves ballet. His favorite recent shoot was at the Vaganova School in St. Petersburg, Russia where he has visited in the past and most recently in the Spring of 2006 for Vanity Fair.
 
Arthur loves working with Vogue’s Grace Coddington and traveling all over the world- to Brazil, China, Russia and Maine.
