Publisher's Description

This book is an updated and expanded edition of his 2002 monograph, featuring a new survey on his work from the past ten years and new artist's writings.

Picture of Bailey Exposed

Publisher's Description

Born into a working-class family in London’s East End in 1938, David Bailey became the best-known photographer of his generation and has led a life that most people can only dream of. His iconic portraits of some of the world’s most famous figures helped to define the fashionable London scene of the 1960s, and soon propelled him into the centre of that world.

Drawing on numerous interviews, some previously unpublished, and illustrated with many iconic photographs as well as previously unpublished images from Bailey’s private archive, this book explores the man behind the camera. His outspoken and irreverent observations on life, death, women, style, fashion, sex, class, the movies, the sixties, photography and Hitler are as thought-provoking as they are revealing.

The book also contains the reflections of some of the illustrious figures Bailey has worked with, among them Angelica Huston, Paul Smith, Jerry Hall, Catherine Deneuve, Mary Quant, Kenneth Williams, Jean Shrimpton, Penelope Tree, Damien Hirst and Diana Vreeland, as well as fellow photographers Cecil Beaton, Terence Donovan and Brian Duffy. In their interviews and writings over the years, these figures have provided some fascinating insights into the experience of being the focus of Bailey’s lens.

Picture of May the Circle Remain Unbroken

Publisher's Description

Corinne Day's photographs influenced a generation of fashion and documentary image makers. Her pictures unflinchingly documented her life and relationships with a realist snapshot aesthetic-representing a youth culture set against the glamour of fashion and avoiding fictionalisation or voyeurism. Gaining notoriety both for a scandalous photo of Kate Moss in Vogue in 1993 and for pioneering so-called 'grunge' fashion photography, for a time she was exiled from the mainstream fashion media. Corinne later returned to the fashion and art world with works exhibited and collected in galleries and museums worldwide. Corinne Day died in August 2010, and in her first book since, we celebrate this icon of photography with a series of previously un-published early works.

Included are texts by Charlotte Cotton & Glenn O'Brien

Picture of Lee Miller in Fashion

Publisher's Description

Muse, surrealist and war photographer, Lee Miller was also one of the twentieth century’s most important fashion photographers – yet her work in the field of fashion remains little known.

This book is the first to redress the balance by exploring her unprecedented contributions as both model and photographer to the century’s leading fashion magazine, Vogue. From the late 1920s when her face graced its cover to the 1940s and 1950s when her stunning photographs lit up its pages, Vogue was the primary outlet for Miller’s daring 
creative vision.

Miller’s transition from one side of the camera to the other was unprecedented, and her fashion self-portraits, in which she was simultaneously model and photographer, are unique in the history of fashion photography. Only a few short years after she picked up the camera for the first time, Vanity Fair would declare her one of the ‘most distinguished living photographers’.

The story of Lee Miller in Fashion is also the story of an amazing transatlantic creative community 
in New York, London and Paris, as well as the changes that rocked the world in these glittering, then tumultuous decades.

Becky E. Conekin seamlessly intertwines this fascinating history with Miller’s life and accomplishments, as well as those of her friends and peers, including Edward Steichen, Man Ray and Picasso. The result is a vivid, beautifully illustrated read about one of the century’s true individuals.

Picture of Erwin Blumenfeld

Publisher's Description

Erwin Blumenfeld (1897-1969) was one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. His work offers a unique perspective on the society and politics of the 1930s through the 60s. Born in Berlin, Blumenfeld's peripatetic career took him first to Amsterdam and then to Paris, where his work in fashion photography began at Vogue in 1938. After two years in a French concentration camp, he made his way to the US and established himself as an eminent fashion photographer. Over one hundred of his photographs featured on the covers of prominent fashion and general interest magazines, including Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Life and Cosmopolitan. Often minimalist, mainly in colour, these photographs testify to Blumenfeld's lifelong interest in experimentation. This landmark publication broadens our understanding of Blumenfeld's innovations, reuniting all the media used by the artist throughout his long career: drawing, photography, photomontage and collage. The motifs of his experimental, sometimes overtly political, black and white photographs appear alongside numerous self-portraits and celebrity portraits, as well as the fashion photographs for which he is most known. Presenting some 150 images, this book provides a fresh understanding of Blumenfeld's photography for the commercial worlds of fashion and advertising, as well as of his full creative scope.

Picture of Message For You - Second Edition

Overseas deliveries  Please note that, as this is a heavy item, overseas postage will be charged at twice our standard rates.

Publisher's Description

With the eye of a painter Guy Bourdin created images containing fascinating stories, compositions and colours. Using fashion photography as his medium, Bourdin explored the provocative and the sublime with a relentless perfectionism and sharp humour. Famed for his suggestive narratives and surreal aesthetics, Bourdin radically broke conventions of commercial photography and in the process captured the imagination of a generation. The late 1970s, recognised as the high note of his career, is the focal point of this new edition, which combines in one book the two volumes of the original 2006 publication. The first part of A Message for You shows the legendary, nearly forgotten images and rarely seen variants of a single model, Nicolle Meyer. She appeared in over thirty of Bourdin’s famous campaigns for Charles Jourdan and in iconic French Vogue editorials. The second part of the book explores Bourdin’s pictorial landscape, a collage of images that maps his artistic vision. The texts, Polaroids, poems, sketches and contact sheets unfold through Nicolle Meyer’s memories and capture moments of Bourdin’s work in progress.

The Bourdin website has many samples of his work.

Picture of Thus Spoke / Tak pravil LaChapelle

Publisher's Description

American photographer David LaChapelle (1963) is one of the world’s most important photographers since the mid-nineties. His work has influenced dozens of other artists and LaChapelle has gradually developed his own distinctive and recognizable style. He is not only concerned with the closed society of galleries and museums but through his work he enters into the wider public space; he also communicates his vision to those who are not interested in art, who do not seek it out, but on the other hand, however unconsciously, feel the need to perceive the surrounding world through a different artistic point of view. The monograph Thus Spoke / Tak pravil LaChapelle is important in the context of his previous publications. It is the first retrospective of the artist’s work which includes photographs from the mid-1980s up to the present. The early photographs have never appeared before. In addition, Thus Spoke LaChapelle also presents a number of previously unreproduced works from other periods of LaChapelle’s work.  In this sense, the book is far more than a regional production and presents the current culmination of LaChapelle’s artistic activity. This is how the book is also viewed by the artist himself and his collaborators. Thus the book has the potential to become an event that raises international awareness and sets the standard for future monographs for the artist.

The book is produced in a bilingual Czech and English edition.

Picture of Anthology of a Decade: USA

In a 2003 conversation with Ingrid Sischy, French designer Hedi Slimane described his beginnings as a photographer: 'I started taking pictures before I even began in fashion. I didn't start with clothes until I was 16, but I had my first camera when I was 11. I've always taken pictures, almost like some people take notes or write down their thoughts.'

Slimane's photographs traverse the music and art scenes, street fashion and haute couture, and are as fresh as his groundbreaking work in fashion.

This volume collects his American photographs, taken in New York and Los Angeles between 2007 and 2011. Portraits of Gore Vidal, Kenneth Anger, Ed Ruscha, Courtney Love, Johnny Rotten, Brice Marden, skateboarders, and various male and female models are included alongside street scenes and still lifes.

Picture of Beaton in Vogue
Publisher's Description
Cecil Beaton was a man of dazzling charm and style and his talents were many. He loved Vogue, and his contributions testify to the wit, imagination and professionalism that the man and the magazine always had in common. Beaton in Vogue selects articles, drawings and photographs by Beaton dating from the 1920s to the 1970s.

In his twenties Beaton recorded London and New York society in needle-sharp words and drawings. Condé Nast, the owner of Vogue, compelled him to abandon his pocket Kodak, and his resulting photographic work earned him a place among the great chroniclers of fashion.

Witty and inventive, he designed settings for plays and films – and for himself – and as a writer he was an eloquent champion of stylish living. His accounts of travel made the most luscious places seem tantalizingly vivid and close.

The turning point in his career was the challenge of working as an official photographer in the Second World War. He travelled the world, no longer in luxury but in uniform, and the photographs, drawings and writings that revealed the face of war, from bombed London to China and the North African Desert, testified to a new maturity of vision.

Cecil Beaton remained triumphantly active to the end of his long life. He became a superb portrait photographer, of royal and other famous faces and forms, and designed the costumes for My Fair Lady (both on stage and on film) and for Gigi. Almost incredibly, when a stroke paralysed his right hand he turned himself into a left-handed draughtsman; and he carried out two marathon photo assignments for French Vogue only a few months before he died.

Picture of L.A. Style
Publisher's Description
Herb Ritts: L.A. Style traces the life and career of the iconic photographer through a compelling selection of renowned, as well as previously unpublished, photographs and two insightful essays. Herb Ritts (1952 –2002) was a Los Angeles-based photographer who established an international reputation for distinctive images of fashion models, nudes, and celebrity portraits. During the 1980s and 1990s, Ritts was sought out by leading fashion designers such as Armani, Gianfranco Ferrè, Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, Valentino, and Versace, as well as magazine editors from GQ, Interview, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair, among others, to lend glamour to their products and layouts. Largely self-taught, Ritts developed his own style, one that often made use of the California light and landscape and helped to separate his work from his New York based peers. From the late 1970s until his untimely death from AIDS in 2002, Ritts’s ability to create photographs that successfully bridged the gap between art and commerce was not only a testament to the power of his imagination and technical skill, but also marked the synergistic union between art, popular culture, and business that followed in the wake of the Pop Art movement of the 1960s and 1970s.

Picture of Deborah Turbeville - The Fashion Pictures
Publisher's Description
From internationally acclaimed photographer Deborah Turbeville comes the first book on her highly influential visionary avant-garde fashion photography. Celebrated for her poetic grace and cinematic vision, Deborah Turbeville has produced fashion tableaux that draw the viewer into her otherworldly environments. A romantic and modernist, Turbeville bridges the boundaries between commercial fashion and fine arts photography. In this remarkable presentation, Turbeville reveals her highly individualistic point of view of fashion photography and the stories behind her photographs.

This first retrospective presentation of Turbeville's fashion photography was selected by the artist herself. In addition, she has designed the evocative layouts to create yet another masterwork. The presentation includes Turbeville's most famous photographs, among them the controversial Bathhouse series of 1975 for American Vogue with disturbingly isolated figures and her Woman in the Woods series of 1977 for Italian Vogue showing psychologically charged emotions, along with her numerous photography campaigns for labels like Sonia Rykiel, Valentino, Yamamonto, Ungaro, and Commes des Garçons, as well as commissions for Chanel and work that has never been seen before. Her most current project for Casa Vogue--Italian nobility dressed in special couture outfits--evokes Turbeville's vision of everlasting beauty.

Hall-Duncan's essay places Deborah Turbeville's non-conventional work in the context of the history of fashion photography. She discusses the important role that this artist has played in shaping contemporary fashion and fine arts photography. She also presents the broad range of disciplines of art, literature, and architecture from the past that has inspired this important artist--from the great silent-films by Eisenstein, Vertov, and Murnau and the later cinematic work of Cocteau, Visconti, Fassbinder, and Bertulucci to Diaghelev's ballet set drawings, Russian literature, and the faded palaces of Europe.

'Duffy and aggravation go together like gin and tonic' David Bailey

Brian Duffy defined the image of the 1960s, and was as famous as the stars he photographed. Together with David Bailey and Terence Donovan, he is recognised as one of the innovators of 'documentary' fashion photography, a style which revolutionised fashion imagery and furthermore the fashion industry.

Together they formed a new cult of the fashion photographer putting themselves centre stage with the models and celebrities they captured on film and leading directly to a photographer cult that manifested itself in the famous film Blow Up. Swinging London had arrived and Duffy was in the thick of it. The press nicknamed the three photographers 'The Terrible Three' and as Duffy put it 'Before 1960, a fashion photographer was tall, thin and camp. But we three are different: short, fat and heterosexual!' Norman Parkinson added to their notoriety by naming them 'The Black Trinity.'

Duffy's first commission came from Ernestine Carter, the then fashion editor of The Sunday Times. From there he was hired by British Vogue in 1957 where he remained working until 1963 photographing famous models such as Pauline Stone and Jean Shrimpton. In the 1960s Duffy worked for many of the major fashion magazine and papers, not only British but also serving long periods with French Elle magazine. His list of subjects was a role call of the celebrities of that time: Sidney Poitier, Michael Caine, Tom Courtney, Sammy Davis JNR, Nina Simone, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Charlton Heston and William Burroughs.

Duffy's most famous photograph dates from the 1970s and is the iconic cover of David Bowie's album Aladdin Sane. He was also critically acclaimed for advertising campaigns for Benson & Hedges and Smirnoff.

Notoriously, in 1979 Duffy decided to give up photography, burning many of his negatives in a symbolic fire in his back yard. Many negatives were lost but in 2009, at the behest of his son, Chris, Duffy took up the camera again for a BBC documentary. Recently many negatives have been discovered and salvaged. The story of his early career and comeback was showcased in the aforementioned BBC documentary shown 8 times in 2010 and titled The Man Who Shot the 60s.

Duffy died on 31 May 2010.
