Item description for Spezial Fotografie: Portfolio No. 24 (Stern Portfolio) by Horst P. Horst...

Sophisticated, chic, decadent, brilliant---these words describe both the life and the art of Horst P. Horst. The premier fashion photographer, Horst delved into the worlds of style and celebrity with equal zeal, and his impact on those worlds will be felt for decades to come. Horst's taste for glamour and elegance, simplicity and perfection are everywhere in evidence in this marvelous array of photos which features renowned fashion spreads, as well as landscapes, flowers, and nudes. But the focus of this volume is the celebrity portrait, a medium in which Horst excelled, as he relished the experience of turning his many friends into subjects, and his subjects into friends. Pablo Picasso, Marlene Dietrich, Coco Chanel, Salvador Dal, Katherine Hepburn, Jacqueline Kennedy, Steve McQueen, Mick Jagger, and Andy Warhol are among some of the unforgettable faces made immortal by Horst's unerring eye. His best photographs, which exhibit both his love for the ancient Greek ideal and his interest in Surrealism, are considered icons of photographic history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Spezial Fotografie: Portfolio No. 24 (Stern Portfolio)?

A nice review and high quality publication.  Jan 15, 2006
I have been searching for information about Horst for quite some time and eventually ran across this book on the Internet. It gives a broad overview of his work, but, as I'm mainly interested in fashion, nudes, and photographing women in general; I feel there are too many other areas of his work represented that do not address these interests. This book has spurred my continuing interest and I'd like to see more of his fashion and nude photographs and would most certainly be interested in a definitive biography of this fascinating photographer.
the man has style  May 19, 2003
well i got to this book as a aprt of an erotic photography search and though the front cover does look very erotic, at least to me, the rest of the book isn't that alureing, it is however a great though a bit too short collection of a great inovating photographer which is just so plesent and interesting to look at, i got it a few weeks ago and i simply can't stop looking at it, the power and delicute of those photos, everything's done to it's extream styling which just send you stright away into a total fantasy world.

so, it's not what i was looking for, but i'm very very pleased with it.
