Gordon von Steiner is a Canadian/British filmmaker and photographer widely recognized for his modern approach to fashion and the female form, as well as his creative use of sound design in film. Through cognitive triggers and a provocative aesthetic, Gordon’s films evoke an emotional reaction through image and sound. His work is constructed with a defined intent: to move the viewer’s initial observation of his art into their long-term memory.
Originally from Toronto, Gordon moved to New York and graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, with a concentration in experimental cinema. He is well known for his continuing film collaborations with legendary photographer Steven Meisel.
von Steiner has created editorial films for American Vogue, Vogue Italia, Visionaire, 25 and W magazine. His commercial credits include Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dior, Jil Sander, Lanvin, Miu Miu, and Prada.
Gordon’s films have received multiple accolades, including the Clio Image Awards, The Society of Publication Designers, and at the Berlin Fashion Film Festival, where his short film Persona won awards in four categories.
His work has been exhibited at Palais Galliera in Paris, Fondazione Forma per la Fotografia in Milan, Museum Bellerive in Zurich and will next be shown at the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow.
von Steiner lives and works in New York City.
