Most coffee table books are alluring with the promise of behind-the-scenes photos and Inferno: Alexander McQueen, is no exception. Every detail of the designer’s 1996 show Dante is there, photographed on film in soft light by Kent Baker. The photographer spent the entire night before the show with McQueen as he cut revised pieces and styled models for hours. “I just sat in silence, impressed by the focus he could summon up in the early hours. I got the feeling he could cut the patterns with his eyes closed,” Baker writes in the foreword.
