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.

Sophisticated, chic, decadent, brilliant?these words describe both the life and the art of Horst P. Horst. The premier fashion photographer, Horst delved into the worlds of style and celebrity with equal zeal, and his impact on those worlds will be felt for decades to come. Horst's taste for glamour and elegance, simplicity and perfection are everywhere in evidence in this marvelous array of photos which features renowned fashion spreads, as well as landscapes, flowers, and nudes. But the focus of this volume is the celebrity portrait, a medium in which Horst excelled, as he relished the experience of turning his many friends into subjects, and his subjects into friends. Pablo Picasso, Marlene Dietrich, Coco Chanel, Salvador Dal?, Katherine Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy, Steve McQueen, Mick Jagger, and Andy Warhol are among some of the unforgettable faces made immortal by Horst's unerring eye.

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.

Tamara Danz, die früh verstorbene Rock-Sängerin der Gruppe 'Silly', ist bis heute eine Legende. Zu ihrem zehnten Todestag 2006 wurde in Berlin eine Straße nach ihr benannt. Alexander Osang, der das letzte Interview mit ihr führte, ist der Frage nachgegangen, wer Tamara Danz eigentlich war und was sie in den Köpfen ihrer Freunde und Feinde hinterlassen hat. Er sprach mit Liebhabern und Rivalinnen, mit Managern und Politikern, mit Kollegen und Ärzten. Entstanden ist ein facettenreiches Porträt, das zugleich Auskunft gibt über menschliches Verhalten in einer Zeit schwieriger Umbrüche. Originaltexte von Tamara Danz, ein umfassender Lebenslauf und eine Discografie ihrer Band 'Silly' komplettieren den Band.

Mere clothing is transformed into desirable fashion by the way it is represented in imagery. Fashion's Double examines how meanings are projected onto garments through their representation, whether in painting, photography, cinema or online fashion film, conveying identity and status, eliciting fascination and desire. With in-depth case studies including the work of Nick Knight and Helmut Newton, film examples such as The Hunger Games, music video Girl Panic by Duran Duran, and much more, this book analyses the interrelationship between clothing, identity, embodiment, representation and self-representation. Written for students and scholars alike, Fashion's Double will appeal to anyone studying fashion, cultural studies, art theory and history, photography, sociology, and film.

Der geniale Architekt und Entwerfer Le Corbusier (1887-1965) erkannte die Wichtigkeit klarer graphischer Gestaltungskonzepte und sorgte dafür, dass seine Arbeiten bereits im Planungsstadium ausführlich fotografisch dokumentiert wurden. Anschließend kümmerte er sich dann persönlich um die Publikation zahlreicher Bücher, die unterschiedlichstes Material seines Schaffens einem breiten Publikum optimal aufbereitet zugänglich machen sollten. Denn gerade im Hinblick auf die suggestive Kraft der Fotografie, die er bei seiner Arbeit gekonnt einzusetzen verstand, war Le Corbusier seiner Zeit weit voraus. Der prächtige Band öffnet den Blick für einen bislang weniger bekannten, aber doch so wesentlichen Aspekt seines Schaffens.
