Photographer of Style
Author: Susanna Brown
Published to accompany a headline exhibition at the V&Amp;A, this book is the definitive celebration of the extraordinary photographic career of Horst P. Horst (1906-99). One of Vogue's most prolific and creative contributors, Horst worked in Paris and New York, photographing fashions by leading designers and making portraits of the century's stars. His important work made outside the realms of fashion photography is also included here. Horst excelled at nude studies and still-life photography, fusing Hellenic and Surrealist motifs and drawing inspiration from artists such as Salvador Dali. He captured the exquisite simplicity of natural forms - plants, shells and stones - transforming them into abstract kaleidoscopic collages. His little-known travel photographs reveal his fascination with ancient cultures, landscapes and architecture and, in later years, Horst photographed some of the world's most beautiful homes for Vogue and House & Garden. His work epitomizes the interconnections between art, fashion and high society. Today, Horst's photographs continue to inspire art directors and photographers, and he ranks alongside Irving Penn and Richard Avedon as one of the great masters of twentieth-century photography.

An acclaimed photographer introduces the incredible variety of stylish cyclists pedaling through city streets in this stunningly illustrated book. No city boasts of a more fashion-forward population of bicyclists than London. Photographer Horst Friedrichs meets his subjects in their own milieu: zooming around the city's streets on two wheels. There he encounters a dazzling array of style and a surprising amount of substance. In tweeds (both Harris and hipster) and Saville Row suits, in hightops and stilettos, in flowing skirts and the skinniest jeans, wildly tattooed and impeccably manicured, sporting bowler hats and racing caps, London's cyclists are jubilantly exercising their fashion freedom. Whether they're leisurely filling their baskets from market to home or pedaling purposefully to an important meeting, experiencing the city as cycling tourists, or getting from place to place in the most economical way possible, Friedrichs' subjects share a love of the bicycle culture that is sweeping the streets of London and the rest of the world.

Patterns from Nature
Author: Martin Barnes
Publisher: Merrell Pub Limited
Horst P. Horst (1906-1999) was one of the twentieth century’s master photographers. A revered figure in the world of fashion image making, he charted sixty years of style for Vogue and House and Garden, from the fashions and celebrities of the 1930s to the interiors of the 1980s. However, little-known within his body of work – and contrasting intriguingly with his career in fashion – is a set of prints and a book, Patterns from Nature (1946). Working with a Rolleiflex and Graphic View Camera in New York, Monterey and Mexico, Horst photographed the detailed textures and forms of natural objects, including plants, rocks, shells and butterfly wings. His close scrutiny of these forms makes them unfamiliar and revelatory. These images were gathered into Patterns from Nature, which also featured 9 kaleidoscopic images made by arranging the photographs in simple repeat. Horst believed that these dynamic patterns would be ‘immediately applicable to industrial fields such as textiles, wallpaper, carpets, plastics and glass’. Published to coincide with a major retrospective on Horst’s work at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Martin Barnes re-examines these images in, Horst: Patterns from Nature. This new edition will make the 9 original collaged images available for the first time in nearly 70 years and will also include a further 28 photo-collages that have only recently been rediscovered and have never before been seen or published.

21st Century Rockers
Author: Horst A. Friedrichs
Publisher: Prestel Pub
Now available in a flexi-cover edition, this book presents images of the rockers' world by the renowned photographer Horst A. Friedrichs. With their tattoos, leather jackets, slicked-back hair, and beloved British motorbikes--BSAs, Triumphs, Nortons, and Royal Enfields--rockers are the nemesis and antithesis of the fastidiously groomed mods. Elvis, James Dean, and Marlon Brando made rocker style synonymous with rebellion, sparking a global cult. Friedrichs follows the British rocker tribe as its members congregate in parking lots, pubs, dance halls, and pool halls as well as huge gatherings at the Jacks Hill and Ace cafes. Alternating between rich, vibrant color and gritty black and white, his photographs capture a spirit of unapologetic defiance in clothing and in attitude, every bit as strong today as it was 60 years ago. Trenchant and revealing commentary from Friedrichs's subjects sheds light on the impulses, yearnings, and motivations of this enduring, international rebel-chic subculture."

Best of ... Horst Diekgerdes --One of the Most Eccentric Visual Creators of the Past Two Decades Not many fashion photographers get to see their pictures become part of the pop-cultural mainstream. The cover the German photographer Horst Diekgerdes created for the Britpop band Pulp's album This Is Hardcore was that rare stroke of genius: under the guidance of the legendary art director Peter Saville, Diekgerdes captured a young woman --she might well be a porn star--in a sexually explicit pose. The album became a smash hit. Diekgerdes has been working in the scene since the 1980s, also creating pictures for the world's coolest fashion magazines, led by AnOther Magazine, as well as numerous fashion brands including Sonia Rykiel and Chloé. His technical proficiency is widely regarded as second to no one's. Arranging the lighting, discussing image definitions and focal lengths, selecting locations, choosing models--he leaves nothing to chance and is not above perfecting a model's hairstyle and makeup. After many years in Paris, the fashion capital, where he regularly attends fashion shows, Diekgerdes is now based in Zurich but travels the world for work. His pictures have been on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, the Fotomuseum Winterthur, and the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg. Publications including Purple, the British, Chinese, and Japanese editions of Vogue, Numéro, AnOther, GQ Style, and Dazed & Confused are among Diekgerdes's regular clients. He also created pictures for advertising campaigns by Sonia Rykiel, Louis Vuitton, Lacoste Polo, MiuMiu, Chloé, Joop, Kenzo, Levi's, Thomas Burberry, Rochas, Hermès, and Victoria Beckham. His first monograph is a celebration of life, fashion, and photography in the form of a photographic journey from the mid-1990s to the present combining fashion photographs with pictures from his personal diaries, observations of everyday life, and previously unpublished works. Jefferson Hack, Anastasia Barbieri, Véronique Leroy, Jina Khajjer, and Jean-Pierre Blanc contributed essays.

A Century of Fashion Photography
Author: Paul Martineau
Publisher: Getty Publications
In 1911 the French publisher Lucien Vogel challenged Edward Steichen to create the first artistic, rather than merely documentary, fashion photographs, a moment that is now considered to be a turning point in the history of fashion photography. As fashion changed over the next century, so did the photography of fashion. Steichen’s modernist approach was forthright and visually arresting. In the 1930s the photographer Martin Munkácsi pioneered a gritty, photojournalistic style. In the 1960s Richard Avedon encouraged his models to express their personalities by smiling and laughing, which had often been discouraged previously. Helmut Newton brought an explosion of sexuality into fashion images and turned the tables on traditional gender stereotypes in the 1970s, and in the 1980s Bruce Weber and Herb Ritts made male sexuality an important part of fashion photography. Today, following the integration of digital technology, teams like Inez & Vinoodh and Mert & Marcus are reshaping our notion of what is acceptable—not just aesthetically but also technically and conceptually—in a fashion photograph. This lavishly illustrated survey of one hundred years of fashion photography updates and reevaluates this history in five chronological chapters by experts in photography and fashion history. It includes more than three hundred photographs by the genre’s most famous practitioners as well as important but lesser-known figures, alongside a selection of costumes, fashion illustrations, magazine covers, and advertisements.
A Style of Her Own

Publisher: La fabrica
Louise Dahl-Wolfe transformed and modernised the look of fashion magazines in the thirties, forties and fifties, the period during which she was active, and hence played a significant role in providing the world of fashion with a new image. Similarly, she breathed fresh life into the portraits of Hollywood stars and was regularly mentioned in the same sentence as the most prestigious photographers of her time, such as Edward Steichen, Horst P. Horst, George Hoyningen-Huene, Irving Penn or Martin Munka csi, later influencing others who would earn global fame, such as Richard Avedon. This book spans the extent of her career as a fashion photographer and includes a large selection of her photographs for Harper's Bazaar, where she worked for two decades, as well as her most emblematic front covers. But it also features her portraits and nudes, an aspect of her oeuvre which has been largely overlooked. Together, these photographs reveal the changes experienced by our society and lifestyle in the middle of the turbulent twentieth century. AUTHOR: Dahl-Wolfe developed most of her photographic career between 1936 and 1958, her years at Harper's Bazaar, where she published more than 600 colour and 3,000 black and white photographs, as well as 86 front covers. In 1938 the magazine sent her to Hollywood to photograph famous actors and actresses, and she broke the mold of cliched studio portraits opting instead to experiment with natural light and to make her subjects pose in outdoor locations. From that point onward she was sent to Hollywood every year to photograph the greatest acting celebrities of the time, such as Vivien Leigh, Marlene Dietrich, Carole Lombard, Bette Davis, Ginger Rogers, Orson Welles and Charles Boyer. Portraiture was a genre the artist kept exploring frequently during the course of her career, compiling a significant archive of photographs of playwrights, composers, artists, film directors and writers including the likes of Jean Cocteau, Colette, Lotte Lenya and Kurt Weill, Christopher Isherwood and W.H. Auden, Edward Hopper, Isamu Noguchi, Carson McCullers, Andre Malraux and Yves Montand. Over 135 images

A Century of Style
Author: Robin Muir
In more than 2,000 issues, British Vogue magazine has acted as a cultural barometer, putting fashion in the context of the larger world in which we live - how we dress, how we entertain, what we eat, listen to, watch, who leads us, excites us and inspires us. The century's most talented photographers, illustrators and a rtists have contributed to it. In Lee Miller it had, unexpectedly, its own war photographer; in Norman Parkinson, Cecil Beaton, David Bailey, Snowdon and Mario Testino the greatest portrait and fashion photographers of their generation; and in Beaton and Irving Penn two giants of twentieth - century photography. From 1892, American Vogue chronicled the life of beautiful people - their clothes, parties, houses and habits - and the magazine was exported for intrigued British readers. In 1916, when the First Wo rld War made trans atlantic shipments impossible, its proprietor, Cond� Nast, authorised a British edition. It was an immediate success, and over the following ten decades of uninterrupted publication continued to mirror its times - the austerity and optimi sm that followed two world wars, the 'Swinging London' scene of the sixties, the radical seventies, the image - conscious eighties - and in its second century remains at the cutting edge of photography and design. Decade by decade, Vogue 100 : A Century of St yle celebrates the greatest moments in fashion, beauty and portrait photography. Illustrated throughout with well - known images, as well as th e less familiar and recently rediscovered, the book focuses on the faces that shaped the cultural landscape: from Matisse to Bacon, Freud and Hirst, from Dietrich to Paltrow, from Fred Astaire to David Beckham, from Lady Diana Cooper to Lady Diana Spencer. It features the fashion designers who defined the century - Dior , Galliano , Balenciaga, Saint Laurent, McQueen - and explores more broadly the changing form of the twentieth - century woman.
