Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Jaques (d. 2008) shot couture fashion for Harper's Bazaar, Holiday, and Town & Country, and his portfolio includes travel photography, portraits of celebrities, writers, painters, and musicians, and photojournalism. Fiori, his editor at Town & Country, where she is now editor in chief, collects and contextualizes the photography of the man she calls "the most influential and least recognized" of the magazine photographers. Jaques worked alone, without assistants, which allowed him to create a sense of intimacy and immediacy with his work. The cover of this collection is a good example, showing Marlon Brando as both virile and vulnerable. This collection shows Jaques's composition to be his strongest quality as a photographer, no matter what the subject. The book is limited to black-and-white photographs because Jaques's color negatives are lost. This book reveals the exceptional quality of Jaques's work and the extent of his influence; recommended for public, academic, and specialized libraries.
