More About Jeanloup Sieff
Jeanloup Sieff was born in 1933 in Paris to parents of Polish origin, and he died in that city in the year 2000. He began his career as a photographer in 1954 after giving up the idea of working in cinema, though his clean, modern and elegant images always conveyed the cool sensuality of the French New Wave. As a fashion photographer, he worked for magazines such as "Nova, Elle, Vogue, Twen, Jardin des Modes, Harper's Bazaar, Esquire" and "Glamour", and as an artist, his work appeared at P.S.1, New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, among many other venues.

Merci, Jean-Loup Feb 22, 2007
Thank You, Jean-Loup. Thank you for teaching us about capturing moments and beauty. My all time favourite photography book.
Worth every penny, saying a lot since I am very economical. Feb 21, 2007
This book is quite a large body of work. I bought it thinking that it would be mostly nude studies and nudescapes but there were also a lot of other impressive shots that were refreshing in their clarity. I was especially impressed by the unflinching honesty by the photographer, in contrast I am somewhat used to books and magazines that reflect an attitude like: "I'm doing this for the; money, fame, prestige, etc." It is nice to know that artists like Sieff have contributed such a vast and great work of inspiration like this.
Wow! Feb 1, 2006
This book is a great collection of Sieffs' work covering 4 decades. The pictures are great, Sieffs' commentary is just as good.
Absolutely mezmerised Jul 21, 2002
Unfortunatly, I have not had the privilege to view this book, but about another from Jeanloup Sieff which I was fortunate enough to recieve as a birthday gift. This softcover A4 format is unfortunately not among your choices. The subject, "BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY". In my opinion, a masterpiece of erotiek sensuality.
Unfortunately, I have lost this collection of works and so wish to find the same back again.
When operating my business as a Photographer in Holland (now retired) I had always tried to simulate his work to no avail. I shall keep trying, for he has captured the very "ESSENCE" of Womanhood.
With highest respect to Jeanloup Sieff
An amazing book that belongs in everybody's collection! May 22, 2001
This book is full of painfully beautiful images- I hated to turn the page, but couldn't wait to see what was next! This is definitely one that will have my complete attention time, and time, and time again. As a photographer, it touches me and speaks to me in a way very few books ever have. It's definitely a good source of inspirational "soul food" before I go out on an assignment. I still can't believe the price- it must be a misprint! At twice the price it is still a bargain.
