Picture of Duffy (Limited Edition)
Publisher's Description
Special edition, limited to 250 numbered copies, containing a limited edition silver gelatin print, stamped by the Duffy archive.

Brian Duffy is best known as one of the great British fashion photographers of the 1960s and 70s, and one of the greatest innovators of documentary fashion photography. This book has been published with the full cooperation of the Duffy archive

'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.

Picture of Mark Morrisroe
Publisher's Description
The extraordinarily diverse work of the American photographer Mark Morrisroe has until now mostly been exhibited and discussed in connection with his famous Boston colleagues Nan Goldin and David Armstrong. Like them, Morrisroe documented his circle of friends, whose lifestyles were inspired by punk and bohemia. He finished his studies at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston in 1982, a few years later than Goldin and Armstrong. He moved to New york in the middle of the 1980s, and died of AIDS-related illnesses in 1989 when he was only 30. Mark Morrisroe’s short period of creativity in the 1980s was astonishingly productive and stands out because of its individual aesthetic. He captured his friends in painterly portraits and nude photographs; the Polaroid camera became a mirror of his own body, reflecting its illness and decay. During the three years leading up to his death he transferred his photographic experiments more and more to the dark room, where he used pages from porno magazines and x-ray images of himself as negatives.

This first comprehensive monograph shows many unknown works: from the tumultuous punk beginnings to the sandwich prints produced through extensive laboratory work, the graininess and muted colors of which are reminiscent of Pictorialism. The book is illustrated with more than 500 images, and accompa- nied by newly commissioned essays and a complete biography.

Picture of Herb Ritts - Stern Portfolio No. 58

Until his death in 2002, this Californian genius created and developed an iconic brand of glamour across the worlds of both editorial and advertising. His trademark groundbreaking approach is still the standard to which others aspire. Indeed, it is his images of world stars and models that best captured style at the end of the 20th century. With an understanding for the architectural quality of true beauty, Ritts conveys its structure, its texture—and its explosive impact. This Stern Fotografie volume features the best—some unpublished—portraits of those whom Herb Ritts immortalized.

Picture of Fashion Magazine - Austin, Texas
Publisher's Description
Following the success of the Fashion Magazines edited by Martin Parr, Bruce Gilden and Alec Soth, Magnum Photos now entrusts the creation of the fourth edition to the acclaimed photographer Lise Sarfati. Sarfati is the winner of numerous awards, including the Prix Niepce and the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography (New York). In this new issue, Lise Sarfati returned to Austin, Texas, to photograph in their natural context the young women she had worked with on her earlier projects. The girls have changed, they are a little older, and some about to emerge from adolescence.

In 'Austin, Texas - Fashion Magazine', Lise Sarfati explores territories of childhood, adolescence and adult womanhood, and seeks to record possible becomings. Explorations of identity that are encouraged by the clothing, which is both incidental and essential: on the one hand, the clothes seem to have been chosen for each model, on the other, they are secondary to the staging of the photo and the role played by the girls.

Sheathed in new clothes, the girls are no longer completely themselves; they've not just slipped into a different outfit, but a different skin.

In this new issue, Lise Sarfati returned to Austin, Texas, to photograph in their natural context the young women she had worked with on her earlier projects. The girls have changed, they are a little older, and some about to emerge from adolescence.

In 'Austin, Texas - Fashion Magazine', Lise Sarfati explores territories of childhood, adolescence and adult womanhood, and seeks to record possible becomings. Explorations of identity that are encouraged by the clothing, which is both incidental and essential: on the one hand, the clothes seem to have been chosen for each model, on the other, they are secondary to the staging of the photo and the role played by the girls.

Sheathed in new clothes, the girls are no longer completely themselves; they've not just slipped into a different outfit, but a different skin.
