British fashion photographer David Sims focuses his lens on the beauty in imperfections. Some of his most iconic work—a portfolio that is said to have set the tone of late 1990s fashion photography—captures the incongruous chink in a flawless image. Models with knotted hair, a wrinkled shirt, asymmetrical blush or a cowlick—through Sims's perfect lens, with Sims's perfect light, it all looks, yes, perfect. You wouldn't imagine it any other way.
