Fashion is a series of nine photographs made by Prince between 1982 and 1984, by re-photographing fashion photographs.

During the 1970s and early 1980s the American artist worked in the tear-sheet department at the Time-Life corporation in Manhattan, helping to oversee seven or eight separate magazines. While there, Prince began to take photographs of those pages, often cropping the shots to obscure any text or logos.

Prince’s full fashion series, is on view at Nahmad Contemporary until April 18.
