Overview

A master of precision, elegance, and startling graphic imagery, the extraordinary brilliance and range of Hiro's photography is presented for the first time in this book. As a young man, Hiro came to New York in the 1950s and worked with Richard Avedon. As a staff photographer for Harper's Bazaar, he worked with the legendary art director Alexey Brodovitch. His work in fashion, portraiture, and still-life are considered lessons in technique, infusing the mundane with elements of surprise. His style is inventive and visionary: a ruby necklace a steer's hoof, an unforgetable shot of the Apollo 11 hunch to the moon, a rare group portrait of the Rolling Stones. In the words of the afterword, "he appears to reduce fashion, like everything he photographs, to a simple but surprising arrangement, so the boundaries between portrait, still-life, and fashion seem to vanish". Hiro is the consummate photographer's photographer and his artistic influence is perceptible in the photographs of every photographer working in fashion today.
