AVEDON, E.O. Photographs 1946-2004. with a rare slipcase

Description :

Very beautiful copy of a hardcover book under jacket in an extremely rare illustrated titled slipcase "Versace" reproducing two versions of a solarised photography. Richard Avedon ( 1923-2004 ) became famous with his fashion photographies and his portraits and his photos beat all the records during auctions. In 1944 his meeting with Alexey Brodovitch, art director of Harper's fashion magazine Bazaar and director of a school of design, will be determining. Richard Avedon's fashion photographies break with the congealed aspect in which the models were previously represented but present unlike the models in movement showing their feelings.

Trought represented portraits in this bookwe shall note of course his famous self-portrait but also Buster Keaton (1952), Marlène Dietrich (1955), Lee Friedlander (2002), Marilyn Monroe (1957), Alberto Giacometti (1958), Malcolm X (1963), Brigitte Bardot (1959), Richard Beckett (1979), Francis Bacon (1979), Of Kooning (1969), The Dalai Lama (1998) or still Erza Pound (1958), Bob Dylan (on 1963 and 1965), Groucho (1972) or Jean Genet (1970) and well of other one else …
