Preview New Book W: Stories Here


Photographer: Biel Parklee

“In a world where lightning-fast Instagram posts compete for attention with snappy Twitter messages, long form photography has become a rare and precious outlet for creative expression,” explains W’s Editor in Chief Stefano Tonchi in his introduction to W: Stories, a new book that reveals the inspiration behind of some of the most memorable W fashion portfolios from the past decade (out today from Abrams.) Steven Klein discusses his memorable story with Kate Moss, “Good Kate, Bad Kate”; Tim Walker talks Tilda Swinton’s trip to Mars in “Planet Tilda”; and Steven Meisel explains Carmen Carrera’s striptease in “Show Girl.” See a preview here.
