Overview

From internationally acclaimed photographer Deborah Turbeville comes the first book on her highly influential visionary avant-garde fashion photography. Celebrated for her poetic grace and cinematic vision, Deborah Turbeville has produced fashion tableaux that draw the viewer into her otherworldly environments. A romantic and modernist, Turbeville bridges the boundaries between commercial fashion and fine arts photography. In this remarkable presentation, Turbeville reveals her highly individualistic point of view of fashion photography and the stories behind her photographs.  
This first retrospective presentation of Turbeville's fashion photography was selected by the artist herself. In addition, she has designed the evocative layouts to create yet another masterwork. The presentation includes Turbeville's most famous photographs, among them the controversial Bathhouse series of 1975 for American Vogue with disturbingly isolated figures and her Woman in the Woods series of 1977 for Italian Vogue showing psychologically charged emotions, along with her numerous photography campaigns for labels like Sonia Rykiel, Valentino, Yamamonto, Ungaro, and Commes des Garçons, as well as commissions for Chanel and work that has never been seen before. Her most current project for Casa Vogue—Italian nobility dressed in special couture outfits—evokes Turbeville's vision of everlasting beauty.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"She was mentored by Avedon, arrested with Bob Richardson, and on set with Diane Arbus, Polly Mellen, and Isabella Blow. Photographer Deborah Turbeville is one of fashion's lenswoman legends—one who got her start in modeling and design (at the hem of Claire McCardell) and did time as a fashion editor (at Harper's Bazaar and Mademoiselle). For decades, Turbeville's signature soft focus and gauzy romanticism have won her the admiration of art directors, editors, stylists, and designers." ~Style.com

"In this remarkable presentation, Turbeville’s highly individualistic perspective of fashion photography and the stories behind her photographs are revealed... Drawing the viewer into ‘otherworldly’ environments, readers are invited to see these iconic images through her decidedly personal point of view. This book is an absolute must-have for those who love both fashion and photography." ~Mojeh
