Roxanne Lowit's Nightlife Diary

For the last 30 years Roxanne Lowit has been taking backstage and nightlife photographs of some of the biggest luminaries in the world of fashion, culture and art. Lowit started taking pictures in the late 70s with her Kodak 110 Instamatic, photographing her own designs at New York fashion shows. She was soon covering all designers in Paris where her friends — models like Jerry Hall — would sneak her backstage. It was there that she found her place (and career) in fashion. On view now at the members only Parlor Club in New York, where Lowit recently celebrated a birthday, are 26 of her photographs and coming up at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art in April she will have her firs solo show in Russia. See more photographs after the jump. Roxanne Lowit: Iconic will be on view at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art from April 12 to May 15, 2012
