For World Photo Day, a Few of the Most Memorable Pictures “W” Has to Offer


Photo by Steven Klein, March 2013

Ever since “W” transformed from a broadsheet paper into the oversize magazine it is today, it has been known as the place where the world’s most talented photographers can indulge their most idiosyncratic — and often controversial — desires. The results are beautiful, yes, but also strange, intimate, wild, fun, and sometimes ridiculous. Most of all, they are memorable. To celebrate World Photo Day, here are just a few of our favorites from the archives.
