Product Description

About the Author

Erwin Blumenfeld's long and prosperous relationship with photography started by accident. Originally from Berlin, Blumenfeld was an ambulance driver during World War II and later emigrated to Amsterdam to set up a leather goods business. The company folded and Blumenfeld was forced to take up photography to provide for himself. After immigrating once again in 1941 this time to New York City, Blumenfeld's career as a fashion photographer blossomed. Working primarily for Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, Blumenfeld's photographs were seen by millions. Blumenfeld's artistic heritage bears the marks of both his European heritage and the fresh start he made in America. This is most notable in his colour photography and photo collages which blend the garish Technicolor of the new-found prosperity of post-WW II New York City with the surrealist and Dadaist influences of his youth in Berlin. Michel Metayer is the director of the prestigious Toulouse School for Fine Art. Trained as a Germanist, Metayer has lectured widely on art and literature and has curated numerous exhibitions both in France and abroad, including two exhibitions on Blumenfeld in Prague and Fribourg, Switzerland.

Some amazing photos and the printing is excellent. Each photo has a facing page of text describing it and the format works well. I bought this as a present and it was a great success.

HASH(0x8937c3b4) out of 5 stars A great photographer 30 Nov. 2004
By Alistair Carsons - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was really impressed by this careful selection of photographs by one of the most inventive photographers of the twentieth century. These beautifully printed images lead us through the life of Erwin Blumenfeld, from Holland, to Paris, to the United States. The photographs lead us through Blumenfeld's endless creativity from striking political photos (of Hitler in 1933) to pure beauty , and on to fashion in the fifties. Many of the interesting captions are taken from Blumenfeld's autobiography Eye to I which I had read with great interest a few years ago. The photographs (55) color and Black and white are placed in chronological order and some of them had not been published before.

The variety of techniques and darkroom magic displayed here is a stunning lesson in photography and this book can be as well considered as a first approach to Erwin Blumenfeld's work as a more in-depth perception, thanks also to the excellent introduction by Michel Métayer.
