Riguardo questo articolo

Neuware - Published to accompany a headline exhibition at the V&A, this book is the definitive celebration of the extraordinary photographic career of Horst P. Horst (1906-99). One of Vogues most prolific and creative contributors, Horst worked in Paris and New York, photographing fashions by leading designers and making portraits of the centurys 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 worlds most beautiful homes for Vogue and House & Garden. His work epitomizes the interconnections between art, fashion and high society.Today, Horsts 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. 320 pp. Englisch.

Riassunto:

Published to accompany a headline exhibition at the V&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. Accompanies the V&A exhibition Horst: Photographer of Style, 6 September 2014 to 4 January 2015

Recensione:

"To be photographed by Horst P. Horst was an honour, a sign that you were someone special in fashion, art or high society. His work for Vogue, including the Muriel Maxwell cover from 1939 (above), transformed fashion photography. The Victoria & Albert Museum in London is hosting an exhibition of his finest work until January 2015 and this richly illustrated accompanying book showcases his most stunning creations." The Daily Mail --http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/books/article-2761256/PICTURE-THIS-Photographer-style.html

"With a foreword by Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of American Vogue, and contributions by a stellar cast of experts, this elegant book explores Horst s life, work and wide-ranging influences. From his instantly recognisable Vogue covers and celebrity portraits to his Patterns From Nature series of abstracts and little-known travel photography, this is a strikingly stylish visual journey." 5* Review in The Lady --http://www.lady.co.uk/culture/books/4647-book-reviews-5-september

"The photographs themselves - from shimmering experiments in light and shadow to Horst's witty sculptural compositions - aren't just fashion images, but art." --Claire Allfree - The Metro
