Glen Luchford: Pictorialism by Glen Luchford
A visually arresting chronicle of the career of one of the top fashion photographers of a generation. Glen Luchford is a true fashion photographer's photographer. His influential and imaginative style- iconic, elaborately lit, highly cinematic, with extreme narratives-reinvigorated fashion photography in the 1990s and 2000s. This book is a photographic artist's diary documenting the span of Luchford's thirty-three-year career. Presented in the form of one continuous overlapping photographic montage, the book consists of intermixed tear sheets, prints, Polaroids, objects, and ephemera. It includes the young Luchford's first photographs of his U.K. post-punk, new romantic friends in the eighties; the best of his gritty nineties editorials, such as his iconic shoot of Kate Moss for The Face; his polished fashion work and celebrity portraits for publications such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and W; as well as memorable advertising campaigns for Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Chloe, and Calvin Klein.
