BROWN, Susanna. Horst: Photographer of Style.

(New York, NY): Skira Rizzoli, 2014. First edition. Quarto. 336 pages. One of Vogue’s most prolific and creative contributors, Horst worked in Paris and New York, photographing fashions by leading designers and making portraits of the century’s stars. His important work made outside the realms of fashion photography is also included here. Horst excelled at nude studies and still-life photography, fusing Hellenic and Surrealist motifs and drawing inspiration from artists such as Salvador Dali. He captured the exquisite simplicity of natural forms – plants, shells and stones – transforming them into abstract kaleidoscopic collages. His little-known travel photographs reveal his fascination with ancient cultures, landscapes and architecture and, in later years, Horst photographed some of the world’s most beautiful homes for Vogue and House & Garden. His work epitomizes the interconnections between art, fashion and high society.A very good copy in boards with inset photo plate.
