Why it's important to remember a generation of intensely creative
photographers from the 70s and 80s.
Born in Pasadena, California, Dixon's first contact with photography came when he got a job at a color lab. He began taking pictures and was published in fashion magazines. His big break came when he signed a contract with Playboy. Dixon has always brought a sleek sensuality to his images and has shot for major magazines (French Elle, Harper's Bazaar) and ad clients (Ray-Ban, Paramount Pictures).
But his attitude toward success is laid back. Still based in his Moroccan-style palazzo in Venice, California, he says he's driven not by artistic ambition but by his dreams of retiring to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
