Flowers, Skulls, Contacts

By BAILEY, David

Steidl,, 2010. What do flowers, skulls and contact sheets have in common? Not much you might think, but David Bailey begs to differ. This book combines Bailey's recent colour photographs of still-life flowers and skulls, with black and white contacts of his iconic celebrity portraiture and fashion work from the 1960s. One might analyze Bailey's combination of these bodies of work in light of the vanitas tradition, seeing it as a commentary on mortality and the passing of time. Indeed such a reading is tempting when comparing images of wilting roses with contacts of Brian Jones and John Lennon, both of whom appear confident in the prime of youth, unaware of the fates that will befall them. But perhaps this is too much, and Bailey himself would probably tell you so. For him, the flowers, skulls and contacts are simply different projects that he was working on simultaneously and decided to combine because he likes the idea of "eclectic collections". Enough said. David Bailey, born in London in 1938, is one of the most successful photographers of his generation. By the 1960s his work, especially for Vogue, had already made him a cult figure. Exhibition: Hamiltons Gallery, London, June 2010.. Hardback, 330x260mm, 300p, 240 colour illustrations, English edition photography

The Nature of Photographs : a primer

By SHORE, Stephen

Phaidon,, 2007.. "The Nature of Photographs" is a primary tool for critical analysis and the understanding of photography in general. As one of the photographers who established colour photography as a legitimate medium of artistic expression in the early 1970s and an influential and important teacher of both the theory and practice of photography, Stephen Shore is the ideal guide to the subject of 'how' to look at photographs. By putting himself in the shoes of the photographers, he imagines the concerns or approach to the subject or concept they may have had when they were taking the picture.. 128 pages, 26 col, 60 b&w ill., hardback photography|new books

Exits: living fashion

By THOMAS, Katrin & UDÉ, Iké

Zürich - New York,: Stemmle,, 1999.. Text in English. The photographer Katrin Thomas moves adeptly between the opposing poles of fashion and art photography. She employs a technique of staged improvisation in dealing with existing aesthetic concepts, exposing the familiar cliches of the omnipresent media with a fine sense of irony. Her photos draw attention to themselves, creating the impression that the photrographer is conveying a mysterious narrative describing close relationship between the actors in her scenes, the locations and the situations in which they are staged. Illustrated primarily in color.. 27 x 34 cm. 126 pp. Ill. Hard cover and dust jacket. New copy. ISBN 3908161762. fashion

NY Js Db 62

By BAILEY, David

Steidl,, 2007. In January 1962, still in his early twenties, David Bailey fulfilled a dream that dated back to his years in Singapore, serving in the Royal Air Force. Heading to the USA, home of the Jazz musicians that had inspired him and the source of his original ambition to be a trumpet-player, Bailey was on his first foreign trip for Vogue, together with his model and girlfriend, Jean Shrimpton. The impact of the early Bailey/Shrimpton collaborations set new standards that helped put Britain back on the world map of popular culture. And the attack on the generational chasm Bailey spearheaded is underlined by the warning he was given that, as a representative of Vogue, he was not to wear his leather jacket in the St Regis Hotel.. Author: Martin Harrison. English edition. Hardback, 330x260mm, 72p, 3 colour illustrations, 27 bw and col. illustrations photography
