Item description for Jeanloup Sieff: 40 Years of Photography by Jeanloup Sieff...

"I have been searching for time past all my life." ---Jeanloup Sieff In this unique monograph, Jeanloup Sieff (1933-2000) retraces in word and image the course of forty years of photographs, encounters, and memories. Divided into four chapters, from the 50s to the 90s, the book brings together the major photographs of a creator who left his imprint on a generation with prolific work in the fields of fashion, advertising, and portrait photography. Sieff's art testifies to his tireless quest to capture the fleeting beauty of "temps perdu," or "time which cannot recur."

Reviews - What do customers think about Jeanloup Sieff: 40 Years of Photography?

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.
