Erwin Blumenfeld: Photographs, Drawings, and Photomontages Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Erwin Blumenfeld (1897and#150;1969) was one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century. His work offers a unique perspective on the society and politics of the 1930s through the 60s. and#160;Born in Berlin, Blumenfeldand#8217;s peripatetic career took him first to Amsterdam and then to Paris, where his work in fashion photography began at Vogue in 1938.and#160; After two years in a French concentration camp, he made his way to the United Statesand#160;and established himself as an eminent fashion photographer. and#160;Over one hundred of his photographs featured on the covers of prominent fashion and general interest magazines, including and#160;Vogue, Harperand#8217;s Bazaar, Life, Look, and Cosmopolitan. Often minimalist, mainly in color, these photographs testify to Blumenfeldand#8217;s lifelong interest in experimentation.


This landmark publication broadens our understanding of Blumenfeldand#8217;s innovations, reuniting all the media used by the artist throughout his long career: drawing, photography, photomontage, and collage. The motifs of his experimental, sometimes overtly political, black-and-white photographs appear alongside numerous self-portraits and celebrity portraits, as well as the fashion photographs for which he is most known.and#160; Presenting some 150 images, this book provides a fresh understanding of Blumenfeldand#8217;s photography for the commercial worlds of fashion and advertising.
