Overview

This extravagant volume is the magnum opus of today’s most celebrated interiors photographer. One of François Halard’s first assignments, to photograph Yves Saint Laurent’s legendary Paris apartment when he was in his early twenties, cemented his reputation as one of the most original eyes of our era. His unique photographic sensibility—old-world elegant and bohemian, accessible and personal—is instantly recognizable. Thirty years later, Halard still captures our imagination with his breathtaking photographs.

Included in this highly anticipated volume are Halard’s images of the glorious homes of the most important tastemakers, artists, and designers of the twentieth century: Axel Vervoordt, Roger Vivier, Richard Avedon, the Duchess of Devonshire, Julian Schnabel, Schiaparelli, Carlo Mollino, Balthus, Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, and many more, including Halard’s own homes in New York, Paris, and Arles. Photographed in his inimitable "grand manner," often for Vogue, this book also shows for the first time the more intimate "house portraits" that Halard would photograph for himself, where his personal vision shines through. François Halard will be a coveted, indispensable resource for all lovers of interior style and a master class in visual education.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Francois Halard’s seductive photos elevate the recording of a room to a work of art.” -Veranda

“…breathtaking new monograph…his romantic eye is drawn to organized chaos, quirky collections, and evidence of lives well lived. He celebrates bulletin boards, work studios, and seemingly mundane objects that inspire the pantheon of aristocrats, artists, and designers he documents.” -Architectural Digest

"This evocative monograph chronicles a career spent documenting houses both grand and humble—and, often, the exceptional people who inhabit them." -HouseBeautiful

    This book was a massive disappointment. I love design and architecture books. Purchase them weekly. Most recent books I have really enjoyed are Stephen Sills, Susan Nunnerley, Juan Montoya, Steven Gambrel, and the crazy-great Kelly Wearstler, to name a few. (Cannot wait for Jean-Louis Deniot to publish his first book of interiors.) But this book is cr*ap. Nothing inspiration about it. Bad photography, especially coming from a man considered one of the best interiors and architecture photographers of the 21st century. Nothing inspirational about it. Too many close-ups of insignificant items, and most of the photography is grainy and just plain bad. Do not waste your money on this book.
