Killer heels : the art of the high-heeled shoe( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Killer Heels explores the rich cultural history of the high heel and its relation to power, fantasy, sexuality and identity. More than 160 spectacular contemporary and historical shoe designs - from sixteenth-century Venetian platforms to twenty-first-century Christian Louboutins - are presented around six themes: Revival and Reinterpretation, Rising in the East, Glamour and Transgression, Architecture, Metamorphosis and Space Walk. Going beyond the archetypal forms of stiletto, wedge and platform, these extraordinary designs play with the cultural and artistic possibilities of the high heel, use innovative or unexpected materials and push the limits of functionality, wear ability and beauty. Complementing the shoes are stills, sketches and artist statements for six films specially commissioned for the exhibition from Ghada Amer and Reza Farkhondeh, Zach Gold, Steven Klein, Nick Knight, Marilyn Minter and Rashaad Newsome that explore a range of provocative themes and demonstrate the power of the high heel in the collective imagination. In addition, several of the designers included in the exhibition (including Brian Atwood, Zaha Hadid, Pierre Hardy and Christian Louboutin), along with Elizabeth Semmelhack, Curator of the Bata Shoe Museum, contribute thoughts on topics such as their inspiration and design process and the cultural significance of high heels. Beautiful, informative and just plain fun, this collection of killer heels is filled with stunning photos and fashion lore

Youssef Nabil : I won't let you die by Youssef Nabil( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Youssef Nabil observes his life as if he were in a cinema, watching and witnessing every minute of his own movie. As a child, the realization that many of his favorite Egyptian film stars were no longer alive left him with the desire to meet all the actors he loves, before they die or before he dies. In the cinema he has created for himself, he reflects on the flamboyance and fantasies of Egyptian society and movie stars in the cosmopolitan war and pre-revolutionary years in his hometown Cairo. This era is also reflected in his technique of hand-coloring photographs which disrupts our notion of photography by evoking moments of longing, distant in time and place. In his self-portraits, he places himself in liminal scenes that linger between worldly realities and serene dreams, loneliness and fame, sex and death." "This is the first comprehensive presentation of Nabil's photographs of artists, his friends, and himself, and images staged over the past fifteen years."--Jacket
