New backstage photos reveal the lives of '90s supermodels in their heyday



Photographer Miles Ladin has been documenting high-profile socialites and celebrities for publications like the New York Times and W Magazine for more than 20 years.

With his discreet camera and handheld, off-camera flash, Ladin captures candid moments of the frenzied backstage atmosphere of runway shows, the dinner tables of intimate parties, and the chaotic media flurry that surrounds these type of events.

His newest book and gallery show "Supermodels at the End of Time" takes a look back at his best shots from the 1990s and early '00s of the biggest modeling stars, and adds a sense of humor with captions from Bret Easton Ellis' satirical novel: "Glamorama."

The show is on display at New York's Station Independent Projects until October 30th.

Ladin's new book and gallery show is made up of photos taken between 1994 and 2002.

"For many years I had been playing around with [the idea of] combining my supermodel pictures from the 1990s with text from the Bret Easton Ellis’ novel "Glamorama,"" Ladin told Business Insider. The book, written in 1998, satirizes celebrity culture of the 90s.

While humor plays a large role in Ladin's work, he made it clear it's never meant to be mean-spirited.
