Abstract:

"In this rollicking account of fashion photography's golden age, bestselling author Michael Gross brings to life the wild genius, ego, passion, and antics of the men (and a few women) behind the camera ... From the postwar covers of Vogue to the triumph of the digital image, the fashion photographer sold not only clothes but ideals of beauty and visions of perfect lives ... Focus probes the lives, hang-ups, and artistic triumphs of more than a dozen of fashion photography's greatest visionaries; Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Melvin Sokolsky, Bert Stern, David Bailey, Bill King, Deborah Turbeville, Helmut Newton, Gilles Bensimon, Bruce Weber, Steven Meisel, Corinne Day, Bob and Terry Richardson, and more."--Jacket.

Fashion photographers sold not only clothes but ideals of beauty and visions of perfect lives. Gross provides a rollicking account of fashion photography's golden age-- the wild genius, ego, passion, and antics of the men (and a few women) behind the camera, from the postwar covers of Vogue to the triumph of the digital image. He takes you behind the scene of revolutionary creative processes-- and the private passions-- of these visionary magicians.
