5.0 out of 5 stars For fashion photography fans, 21 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vogue: The Editor's Eye (Hardcover)
There are many photo books dedicated to famous photographers. What makes this one different is the fact that fashion editors are featured as key figures in the production of the amazing photographic stories Vogue is famous for.

The volume is coffee-table size, with wonderful colour photos and short bios of a few Vogue editors (I gather, those who are still alive). They were interviewed and offered some personal photos, so we get a glimpse of their lives. As anything Vogue, most of these women come from privileged background and got their job thanks to their connections.

However, this does not mean that the results of their work were not appreciable. Flipping through the chronologically arranged book is like flipping through the history of fashion from the 40's until today. Many famous images by Newton, Penn, Avedon and many others Vogue photographers are featured.

I particularly like the photos from the 70's, which reminded me of famous models of the time (like Lisa Taylor, who was a Newton's favourite) and the section dedicated to Coddington, with her unbelievably detailed stories. I particularly liked the reinterpretation of fairy tales, such as Alice in Wonderland and those of movies (Hitchcock classics or even fictional movies).

I totally loved this book. However, I understand that to fully appreciate it, one must be interested in fashion AND photography. If you care nothing about one or the other, you probably will not enjoy as much as I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mum loved it, 15 Dec 2012
This review is from: Vogue: The Editor's Eye (Hardcover)
I bought this for my fashionable mum for her birthday and she loved it. I was hoping for a classy book worthy of siting on a coffee table and it did just that. Nice and weighty book with high quality prints - something you could imagine buying in the Tate modern shop.
