The less the French portrait photographer Eric Nehr knows about his subjects, the better. ”I select my models for the curve of a nape, the radiance of a complexion — nothing else,” he says. For ”Artistic License” on Page 102, Nehr shot this season’s expressive prints and jewel tones as an homage to the Austrian figurative painter Egon Schiele. The lanky artist’s angular aesthetic has made him a godfather of sorts to designers like Raf Simons. ”What strikes me is Schiele’s detailed attention to clothing — the matter, the pattern and the color — that he puts on skeletal bodies,” Nehr says. (To achieve the Schiele-esque effect, Nehr hand-painted the studio’s background and then color-washed the resulting photographs with complementing hues.)
