Overview


This collection of legendary images from some of the world s most revered photographers celebrates a dynamic era in all its glory and excitement. The 1960s and '70s were a time when mainstream culture was turned on its head. Everything from fashion and music to politics and religion was questioned or reinvented while technological advances allowed people around the world to witness these incredible changes. Drawn from the Nicola Erni Collection, the spectacular images in this volume represent the iconic people, places, and events of the era, and were created by the most celebrated photographers of their time as well as press photographers. Iconic figures such as Jackie Kennedy, Mick Jagger, Maria Callas and Truman Capote; happening locales such as Warhol's Factory, Studio 54 and London's nightclubs; the jet-setting scenes of Saint-Tropez, St. Moritz, Paris, and Rome-it's all here as viewed through the lenses of Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Francesco Scavullo, Robert Mapplethorpe, Lord Snowdon, Andy Warhol and others. A fascinating introductory essay explores the era's cultural scene and examines the art of celebrity photography. Pulsing with life and creativity, this treasure trove of photographs preserves for posterity an unforgettable time.

[Erni's] collection of—mostly—black-and-white images, a tumbling forth of well-known faces in candid and droll combinations that recall a family album, is as hard to resist as a Whitman sampler.
