David Hamilton was born in London in 1933 and lives near St. Tropez, France. After his study of architecture and design he turns to typography and layout. While he was an art director of the English magazine QUEEN, he bought his first camera. Later settling in Paris as art director of PRINTEMPS he began devoting himself exclusively to photography. David Hamilton has worked for the best international magazines, his work has been shown all over the world including leading centres of art culture in New, Tokyo, London, Hamburg, Milan and Paris. David Hamilton pioneered the "soft focus" style which has imitated so often and is even known as "the Hamilton look."
La Danse The reproduction of his fantastic photos is even better than I had hoped for and the CDs are a great bonus!
La Danse by David Hamilton Jan 7, 2008
A beautiful book with the impressionistic photography of David Hamilton. The main dance of the book is ballet, a rather nawor focus these days. Featured are mostly young, female dancers, but there are also shots of Nureyev and a few other male dancers. Finally, it differs from other David Hamilton books by featuring mostly fully-clothed dancers.
Ballet Photography At Its Best From One Of The Best In Photography Mar 20, 2007
Do you enjoy ballet photography? Are you a fan of David Hamilton? Do you enjoy classical music? Are you a fan of Rudolf Nureyev? If you are a fan of one or all of them, you'll want to own this fine collectible publication. I recently purchased a copy and find it to be of top quality in terms of professionalism in photography. The original La Danse, which, I believe was published in 1974? Contained many of the same photographs which grace the pages of this up-to-date version. There's the splendid full page photographs of charming young girls in ballet, and the rare photographs of Rudolf Nureyev. But in the updated version, there is more, much much more. The book contains 4 Classical Ballet music cds, plus photographs from two other David Hamilton classics, Laura and Bilitis. So in many ways, this up-to-date version is much better than the original version. If you want to own a book of David Hamilton's at a more affordable price, La Danse will be it.
