Overview

Hans Feurer has been a mainstay of fashion photography since the late 1960s, but despite his influence, this legendary photographer has had no books dedicated to his work--until now. Feurer's career has certainly been an illustrious, star-studded and influential one, and the models who were his subjects, the designers he profiled and the leading publications which featured his work comprise a roll call of the highest echelons of the fashion and magazine worlds. Feurer has shot for Vogue, Nova, Elle and many more leading publications. One of his most famous advertising campaigns was for Kenzo in 1983, which immortalized Iman and secured her status as an iconic supermodel of the period. Before embarking on a career in photography, Feurer worked as a graphic designer and art director. Traces of these previous careers are detectable throughout his work, evidenced by his careful compositions and precise styling. Emmanuelle Alt, the editor of French Vogue, has revived Feurer's photographic career, and he is now widely referenced by top photographers such as Inez & Vinoodh. Designed by Fabien Baron, and lavishly illustrated with 175 photographs, this overview is a must-have for collectors of fashion photography books. It presents the photographer's most iconic images from throughout the years, in a fascinating mélange of fashion styles and trends.Hans Feurer was born in Switzerland in 1939. After studying art in Switzerland, he worked as a graphic designer, illustrator and artistic director in London. In 1966, he traveled to Africa, during which trip he decided to become a photographer. He returned to London and began to compile a portfolio.

Editorial Reviews

American Photo - Jack Crager
Feurer's fashion imagery for Vogue, Nova, Antidote, and other publications sizzles with verve. He trots the globe to depict lithe, iridescently clad (sometimes painted) models in deserts, oceans, native crowds, theatrical tableaux, and points in between. This lush, 200-page monograph is the first comprehensive collection of the veteran photographer's oeuvre.
WSJ - Christopher Ross
Hans Feurer is the first monograph by the celebrated fashion photographer, containing 175 images - like the 1983 Kenzo campaign that sealed Iman's career - with art direction by Fabien Baron.
Photograph - Vince Aletti
Picking up the fashion thread introduced by the Sorrenti book, look out for Hans Feurer, the first collection of the Swiss photographer's high-energy editorial, advertising, and calendar work. Still shooting at 74, Feurer was first popular in the 1970s, when his pages in French Vogue, Elle, and Nova caught the sexy, sporty, liberated spirit of the times.
W Magazine - Karin Nelson
The legendary Swiss photographer admits he got into fashion to be around beautiful women. And for the past half-century, he's been paying tribute to them with his sensual, free-spirited, and wildly influential images - the best of which have finally been compiled into his first monograph.
Interview - Rachel Small
Im September, Damiani will release Hans Feurer, a career-spanning volume that explores Feurer's innovative use of natural light and environnements in making groundbreaking fashion images that showcase the female form.
