"Women... A little out of balance with their surroundings, waiting anxiously for the right person to find them, and thinking that perhaps they are out of their time..." First edition of photography auteur Deborah Turbeville’s debut book. Known for bringing an edge to fashion photography previously absent in commercial work, this simultaneously sensual and unsettling collection of soft-focus fashion photos demonstrates her intentional departure from the highly sexualized and often misogynistic depictions of women that defined the fashion industry at the time. Illustrated throughout with color and black-and-white plates, many full-page. Fine in unclipped dust jacket. Item #4040
