A Century of Fashion Photography

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.

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.

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.

Featuring work by every important fashion photographer of the past, alongside those shaping contemporary taste today--including Richard Avedon, Horst P. Horst, William Klein, Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, Steven Meisel, Corinne Day, and Juergen Teller, to name a few--fashion chronicler Eugenie Shinkle reveals illuminating moments in the story of fashion and photography, while sketching the bigger picture. She charts how fashion photography flourished with the rise of illustrated magazines, how influential art directors collaborated with photographers to shape epochs of style, and how generations of fashion photographers have built upon each other's ideas to expand this genre.
