Book Description

31 Oct 2009
For almost forty years one of Britain's most important photographic archives has remained unseen. Created by the legendary fashion editor Ernestine Carter, the hundreds of images she commissioned for "The Sunday Times" include some of the finest photo-shoots of the Sixties. "Photographing Fashion" champions the best of British chosen by her during this incredible decade: photographers John Cowan, Terence Donovan, John French and Patrick Hunt capture the mood, with the clothes of Mary Quant, John Bates, Gina Fratini, Foale & Tuffin, Biba, Jean Muir, and Ossie Clark. The emphasis is on an unswerving eye for style, with a fresh look at everything from ball gowns to beachwear . Unparalleled photographs, groundbreaking fashion, all published for the first time since they appeared in the decade that still defines British style.

4.0 out of 5 stars A limited collection 9 July 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The fashion photographs in this book are entirely black and white and were overwhelmingly edited by the Sunday Times Fashion Page. It is an excellent example of fashion for its own sake.
A large proportion of the pictures were taken by Norman Eales whose work in aparkling black and white was unsurpassed on the fashion pages of the newspapers in the sixties and early seventies. Richard Lester gives a written appreciation to this effect.
A must for the discerning collector of fashion photography

An excellent reminder, in photographs, of a seminal time for British fashion. Bought at a great price and with quick delivery. Richard Lester's talent is clear from the amazing photographic record gathered together in this exciting volume.
