the history of fashion photography

the history of fashion photography
the first systemic history of fashion photography, this perceptively written and superbly illustrated book deals not only with the somersaults of fashion but with changing trends in photography and in art, taste, manners and social customs. exploding the theory that commercial photography is not art, hall-duncan shows that many of the world's most celebrated "art" photographers (including kertesz, arbus, and man ray) also portrayed fashion.
