The world's most photographed by Robin Muir( Book )
5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 270 libraries worldwide
"The World's Most Photographed explores the photographic image of ten of the best-known faces of modern history. By unearthing photographs that have previously been lost or suppressed, author Robin Muir demonstrates not only how the public image of each subject was manipulated, but he also gives fresh insights into their personalities and lives. The ten selected personalities range from a crowned head of state to a world-beating boxer, from film stars to a fascist dictator. Illustrated with over 180 photographs, the book creates a compelling new perspective on the history of celebrity, notoriety and the nature of iconography."--Jacket
John Deakin : photographs by John Deakin( Book )
10 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 240 libraries worldwide
His clarity of vision had a merciless, often brutal directness and a psychological intensity, both fascinating and shocking in equal measure. Whether he was photographing writers, artists, fashion models, or Hollywood stars for British Vogue in the late 1940s and early 1950s (where he achieved notoriety for being fired twice) or whether portraying his artist and poet friends in London's bohemia, Soho, he made no concessions whatever to his subjects' vanity, scorning any need for admiration in his pursuit of truthful depiction. After several years of research, Robin Muir, former picture editor of British Vogue, has now brought together a comprehensive collection of Deakin's most important photographs

Vernier : fashion, femininity & form by Eugène Vernier( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 102 libraries worldwide
Featuring more than one hundred of Vernier's own favorite photographs drawn from Vogue's extensive photo archive, this lavishly illustrated volume reveals remarkable innovation in the use of props, backdrops, and location. Whether he was photographing his subjects by the sea, with a canine companion, or perfectly positioned atop a pale pink convertible, Vernier's careful composition enhanced the essence of his subject. Vernier shot mostly in black-and-white, and his trademark "look" is one of classic femininity. He sought to capture models when they were relaxed, enjoying the clothing, and confident that their photographer would show both only at their best. Providing commentary on the photographs are fashion history expert Becky Conekin and Vogue historian Robin Muir. This is first book to focus on Vernier's work at Vogue and it allows readers a rare glimpse of his inimitable blend of technical excellence and an eye for experimentation

4 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 87 libraries worldwide
Under the influence : John Deakin, photography and the lure of Soho by Robin Muir( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 82 libraries worldwide
Considered to be one of the greatest of postwar British photographers, Deakin was renowned for his penetrating portraits, haunting street scenes and striking fashion work. Though he flourished briefly at Vogue, it was the lure of nearby Soho with its pubs, clubs and subterranean watering holes that captured his interest most. Loved and loathed in equal measure by friends and drinking companions, Deakin was a legendary member of the quarter's maverick crowd of artists, writers, poets and assorted characters and misfits. As its most famous chronicler with a camera, he is inextricably linked to Soho's bohemian heyday in the two decades following the War. Exhibition: Photographer's Gallery, London, UK (11.04-13.07.2014)

Terence Donovan was one of the foremost photographers of his generation--among the greatest Britain has ever produced.
