Sante D’Orazio is one of the preeminent fashion and beauty photographers of our day. Born in Brooklyn, the Italo-American is no stranger to Schirmer/Mosel fans. His work appears in two of our books — A Private View and Pamela Anderson: American Icon. All of these photos are generally intended for publication in magazines. Some are quite revealing while others are more discrete. Sante D’Orazio now unlocks his treasure chest in order to share a selection of his Polaroids, which he almost always takes before getting down to
serious shooting. Featuring Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Michelle Pfeiffer, John Travolta, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Johnny Depp, Keith Richards, Sting, and many others, the playful quality of these images is unmatched. They reflect the interaction
between photographer and model, and their erotic, voyeuristic quality is heightened by their intimacy.
