Robert Peters just posted on his blog that Deborah Turbeville has passed away. Turbeville was one of three different women photographers in the 80’s who had a profound influence on me while forming my own vision. Turbeville, Sheila Metzer and Sarah Moon.
All three brought a romanticism to their work, and all three had this unique ability to bring a fine art sensibility to the fashion world.
You can read a great interview with Turbeville here. PDN’s obit is here She was 81.
