Natural Beauty: Farber Nudesby Robert Farber (Photographer), Arnold Newman (Preface by)
Robert Farber is celebrated for his sensitive, sensual, often abstract nudes. But his preoccupation with natural forms extends beyond the human body: landscapes and flower studies have been among his most popular pieces, and also feature among the works published here. The technical proficiency fostered by Farber's background in commercial and fashion photography bestows an inimitably soft, grainy patina upon his increasingly simple, elegant, spare images. Light, color, tone, and composition are all carefully orchestrated to render a sense of stillness, silence, and peace. Whether presented as portraits or as abstract compositions, what these exquisite pieces have in common is their ability to provoke in the viewer a sense of quietude and contemplation. Painterly, textured, these masterly photographs prove that Farber's reputation as the doyen of mood is utterly deserved.
Author Biography: Robert Farber is one of the world's foremost photographers of fashions and nudes. His work has appeared in major magazines and newspapers worldwide and won several awards, and he has lectured throughout Europe and the USA.
