The History of Fashion Photography

New York: International Museum of Photography, 1979. 1st Edition. Large quarto, publisher's mauve cloth, spine stamped in silver, upper board blindstamped, light mauve laid endpapers, original photo-illustrated dust jacket.

Fashion photography curator Nancy Hall-Duncan’s celebrated monograph. The outgrowth of an exhibit Hall-Duncan put together for the International Museum of Photography at the George Eastman House (now the George Eastman Museum) in 1977, this sourcebook was the first systematic attempt to present the history of fashion photography from its beginnings in the mid-19th century, and assess the medium’s significance in reflecting and forming social and artistic realities. Duncan-Hall details each epoch and its influential figures, including such luminaries as Cecil Beaton, Guy Bourdin, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Baron Adolf de Meyer, Hiro, George Hoyningen-Huene, George Platt Lynes, Martin Munkasci, Helmut Newton, Irving Penn, Deborah Turbeville, Man Ray, and others. Extensively illustrated with color and black-and-white plates; with a preface by French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent and an introduction by fashion design curator and historian Robert Riley; and 70 photographer biographies, bibliography, list of plates, and an index. Lightest rubbing and edgewear to unclipped dust jacket, else fine. Item #4652
