Photographer Miles Ladin shows the tedious side of celebrity
Miles Ladin, Kate Moss at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala (1995)
Supermodels at the End of Time at the Station Independent Projects in New York (7-30 October 2016) is a show of 29 images by the photographer Miles Ladin that aim to convey the “ennui that celebrities must at times endure as they try to keep their fame afloat”, Ladin told The Art Newspaper. One of the photographs, shot in 1994, shows Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista at the Museum of Modern of Art in New York for the premiere of the film In the Name of the Father, directed by Jim Sheridan. “I’m not quite sure why supermodels were celebrating a movie about the IRA, but they were in attendance and holding court at a banquette table in the dining room—this photo could be titled Supermodels Seen Through a Fishbowl,” said Ladin. Another, a close-up shot of Kate Moss in 1995 at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, shows “the absurdity of the red carpet gown culture”, Ladin said. “The event wasn’t even televised then, and I don’t remember much of a red carpet… Today hundreds of photographers get the same shots from cordoned off terraced pens set up for the posed photo-op—boring!”
