Lillian Bassman : Women, Hardback

Lillian Bassman : Women Hardback



With more than 200 of her best images reproduced in stunning tritone, including many never published before and others not seen since they appeared in the pages of the legendary "Harper's Bazaar" of the 1950s, "Lillian Bassman: Women" offers a retrospective view of an extraordinary career in photography.

At 91 and still hard at work, Bassman is a beloved figure in the pantheon of fashion photographers.

Her signature style, once described by Richard Avedon as making 'visible that heart-breaking invisible place between the appearance and the disappearance of things', offered a sensuous and intimate vision of modern women.

Says Judith Thurman, 'Bassman's women - perennially soulful, elusively chic - have the poignancy of an endangered species'.

Well-known art writer and journalist Deborah Solomon contributes an introduction.

An illustrated chronology gives a cinematic overview of a remarkable life.
