300 historical, documentary and art photos about the sea, by photographers including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Man Ray, Jacques Henri-Lartigue and David Parker. Bringing together 300 historical, documentary, and art photographs, this album of classic and contemporary prints brings to life the fury of crashing waves, the infinite calm of a windless day, the desolate beauty of a frozen landscape, and portraits of the men and women who navigate their lives around the ebb and flow of the ocean´s current.
This beautifully illustrated survey examines the art and artists of the Edo period, one of the great epochs in Japanese art. Together with the imperial city of Kyoto and the port cities of Osaka and Nagasaki, the splendid capital city of Edo (now Tokyo) nurtured a magnificent tradition of painting, calligraphy, printmaking, ceramics, architecture, textile work, and lacquer. As each city created its own distinctive social, political, and economic environment, its art acquired a unique flavor and aesthetic. Author Christine Guth focuses on the urban aspects of Edo art, including discussions of many of Japan´s most popular artists--Korin, Utamaro, and Hiroshige, among others--as well as those that are lesser known, and provides a fascinating look at the cities in which they worked.
A special twentieth anniversary edition of the only definitive publication on one of the most respected and influential fashion designers of our time. A new edition of the only major monograph published on Alaïa, which has been out of print for over a decade. Alaïa was renowned for highly intricate form fitting couture with a sculptural quality. More than a decade in the making, this book is a celebration of Alaïa´s world, a collection of images of his haute couture creations worn by his muses and photographed by icons of twentieth century fashion. With archival photographs chronicling Alaïa´s early years in Tunisia; excerpts from literary texts and other sources of inspiration for the couturier; and contributions from his closest friends, the reader is invited to discover an intimate world where creation was allowed to flourish. Alaïa features more than 200 photographs by Paolo Roversi, Annie Leibovitz, Steven Meisel, Helmut Newton, Patrick Demarchelier, Arthur Elgort, Ellen von Unwerth, Gilles Bensimon, and numerous other master photographers. With a new introduction by Carla Sozzani and Christoph von Weyhe from the Association Alaïa this book is a testament to a designer whose tremendous skill, unique vision, and independent spirit colored the fabric of the fashion industry forever.
