Supermodels at the End of Time presents a satiric look at the hollow glamour found during our most recent fin de siècle. While on assignment for Women’s Wear Daily and W Magazine, Miles Ladin captured his supermodels at A-list events including the Met’s Costume Institute Gala, the CFDA Awards, and New York Fashion Week. During the same period, author Bret Easton Ellis wrote his novel Glamorama which was published in 1998. Ellis’ fictional world is a sardonic cracked mirror based on the same reality that Ladin captured in film. Supermodels at the End of Time takes the viewer onto the runway of fashion’s elite and into the dark recesses of beauty’s shadow side, in a brilliant caricature.

A copy of the edition was recently acquired by the Museum of Modern Art/Franklin Furnace Artist Book Collection. This limited edition artist’s book was created by the artist and combines his signature black & white photography of supermodels shot in the 1990s with text by author Bret Easton Ellis. Supermodels include: Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Lauren Hutton, Iman, Christy Turlington, and many more. Creative Director Nick Vogelson acted as Design Consultant on the edition.
