Christy Turlington


Recommended Posts

Thanks LAM for the heads-up re the Christy book!

"Supermodel Christy Turlington, who Markus photographed many times at far-flung locations around the world, describes Markus as “a perfectionist—so much time, care, and intelligent thought goes into every image. He subscribes to the idea that you don’t rush things that are special.” Turlington and Markus traveled to Madagascar and climbed Kenya’s Mt. Kilimanjaro, among other shared adventures. “Even though he was one of the very best photographers in the fashion world, to call him a fashion photographer wouldn’t be quite accurate,” she says. Turlington described a session with Markus as “a study in craft,” in which photographer and subject are creative co-conspirators. “He sees the space, the angles, the composition, the possibilities. His mind is always going. But there is a quiet curiosity and a sense of respect that encourages you to be free and allows surprises to happen.” Turlington and Markus have created a book called “Christy” which will be published the end of this year. With sadness Kurt will not be able to see his final book."
