Item description for Anuschka Blommers & Niels Schumm: Anita and 124 Other Portraits by Laurence Benaim & Domeniek Ruyters...
Anita and 124 Other Portraits surveys 10 years of fashion and other photography from Anuschka Blommers and Niels Schumm, and is the first book to bring together all the wide-ranging elements of their increasingly closely watched collaboration. The duo is known for playing with the conventions of fashion in their work: in one piece, they explicitly pictured the instructions they had received from a well-known Japanese fashion house telling them how to photograph the clothes; for another fashion photo they selected someone who was not a professional model and, contrary to the client's expectations, worked with neither a hairstylist nor a makeup artist. This led to the creation of a hyper-real image that touched on the surreal. In this volume, their fashion portfolios--they've worked for Self Service, Purple, Dazed & Confused, i-D, Re-Magazine, Another Magazine, Visionaire, British and Japanese Vogue, Interview, and the New York Times Magazine--are presented in complete series, many in their original magazine layouts. Portraits are ordered alphabetically, which results in unexpected combinations of style, and of civilians and stars, including Veronique Branquinho, Hussein Chalayan, Anton Corbijn, Nicolas Ghesquiere, Rem Koolhaas, Steve McQueen, Chloe Sevigny, Hedi Slimane and Viktor & Rolf.
