Artist and photographer tweak the noses of their subjects in a series of playful portraits
Photographer Inge Morath and the late New Yorker artist Saul Steinberg engaged in a unique collaboration in the late 1950s and early 1960s by having friends and acquaintances don paper bags drawn with fantastic faces and then posing them for photographs. In a delightful series of individual and group portraits--now published together for the first time--otherwise respectable people have been implicated in their mischief. Morath's straightforward, reportorial style is the perfect counterpoint to Steinberg's charming, whimsical masks. The deadpan of the photography, the Paul Klee-like humor of the drawing, and the intriguing anonymity of the figures--we don't know who they are, but we know exactly who they are--stir a spirit of mischievious charm that will make this the perfect little gift book.
