Paul Verlaine’s verses about “The strange and penetrating dream of an unknown woman… who’s never, each time, the same exactly, nor, exactly, different” were written in 1866.
This was a while ago and Kate Moss is far from unknown, but Verlaine’s description in “The Familiar Dream” seems to fit her today like a velvet glove.The portfolio published by James Danziger shows the British icon through time, space and the eyes of 11 photographers and her familiar face reverberates to the camera like no other. Regardless of the years and the drastic different styles of the photographers, Kate remains Kate, still, inhabiting their universe while bringing her own touch to it.
The limited edition portfolio of photographs of Kate Moss by 11 of the world’s leading photographers is curated by James Danziger and Kate Moss, it features photographs by:
