Richard Avedon's iconic fashion work not only changed fashion photography but also changed the way the world looks at fashion.

The man behind Purple magazine is the chronicler of his generation, exposing the lifestyles of the creative elite through his intimate, autobiographical photographs. Author: Olivier Zahm
Since first coming to prominence 10 years ago, Ryan McGinley has ushered in a wholly new language of photography: images that are uniquely grounded in our contemporary moment while simultaneously evoking an idyllic timelessness. In this new volume, Ryan McGinley: Way Far, the artist presents a collection of his most recent work. McGinley was the first of his generation of artists to explore the nude figure within the American landscape. With a fresh set of eyes, he embarked on an on-going series of images that were shot during months-long summer road trips cross-country. Transfixed by the open vistas and the picturesque wilderness he found along the way, McGinley and his models-not unlike explorers from another century-set out to rediscover these unpopulated spaces. Whether hiking on peat covered mountains, swimming in crystalline lakes, or rolling around in vast fields of tall grass, the artist's images of bodies in pastoral scenes have been his signature, and his triumph has been his ability to evoke the almost dream-like state that comes with that kind of freedom. As one of the most critically acclaimed photographers working today and rightfully considered the voice of a generation, no other contemporary artist's work has permeated pop culture this indelibly.

This first full-career monograph, featuring two decades of iconic fashion and celebrity editorial photographs, reveals the enormous influence and impact that Richardson has made on contemporary style, culture, and photography. Since Terry Richardson first rose to prominence in the 1990s, he has shocked and intrigued the world with his singular view and signature style of bold lighting, hypersexualized styling, and striking, off-kilter glamour. From glossy, high-end fashion photographs to raw in-studio portraits, Richardson's work has had an unmistakable impact on contemporary visual culture. This two-volume set, which is separated into Richardson's fashion photography and celebrity portraiture, features more than 600 photographs and includes early, rarely seen magazine work from now-defunct publications; iconic and influential work for magazines such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, The Face, i-D, Vice, and Interview; advertising work for brands such as Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Chloé, and A.P.C.; and very intimate studio portraits. This compilation is an intriguing look at the mark Richardson's work has made on fashion, photography, and pop culture, and it captures his edgy, provocative style in a book that is as unusual and unforgettable as the photographer himself.
The definitive monograph of Ari Marcopoulos, the renowned photographer whose explicit and startling visual intimacy bridges art and street photography. For nearly four decades, Ari Marcopoulos has broken conventions with his candid and raw style. His photographs documenting subcultures such as skateboarding, snowboarding, and hip-hop; his tendencies to photograph stark landscapes, portraits of artists, and celebrities; and his extremely quiet and intimate photos of his family and friends have all been hugely influential in helping to establish the visual rawness of youth culture, as well as the ephemeral aesthetic of contemporary photography. Ari Marcopoulos: Not Yet is an unprecedented journey through the artist's celebrated career, from skateboarding and snowboarding to rural landscapes and cityscapes. This volume includes both iconic and never-before-published photographs from the 1980s to now. Each chapter is edited by a different celebrated artist or family member all close to Marcopoulos and it is through these personal reflections on the artist's work that this monograph takes on a deeper level of intimacy, drawing a more complete portrait of his oeuvre."

The first Vreeland book to focus on her three decades at Harper's Bazaar, where the legendary editor honed her singular take on fashion. In 1936, Harper's Bazaar editor in chief Carmel Snow made a decision that changed fashion forever when she invited a stylish London transplant named Diana Vreeland to join her magazine. Vreeland created "Why Don't You?"-an illustrated column of irreverent advice for chic living. Soon she was named the magazine's fashion editor-a position that Richard Avedon later famously credited Vreeland with inventing. The troika of Snow, legendary art director Alexey Brodovitch, and Vreeland formed a creative collaboration that continued Harper's Bazaar's dominance as America's leading fashion magazine. As World War II changed women's role in society, Vreeland's love for fashion and endless imagination provided exciting, modern imagery for this new paradigm. This book covers Vreeland's three-decade tenure at Bazaar, revealing how Vreeland reshaped the role of the fashion editor by introducing styling, creative direction, and visual storytelling. Her innovative perspective and creative working relationships with photographers such as Richard Avedon, Cecil Beaton, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Lillian Bassman, and Hoyningen-Huene brought the American woman into a modern world. Through more than 300 images from the magazine, this book shows how Vreeland's work not only influenced her readership, but also forged the path for modern fashion storytelling that endures today.
