Lagerfeld, Karl - Aktstrakt
Steidl Collectors Series. In Akstrakt, photographer Karl Lagerfeld deals with the topic of form. In so doing, he takes the liberty of broadening, in the Beuysian sense, the concept of art, including man's physicality. The strictly thought-out study Akstrakt, consisting of 13 photo plates, formally takes up the tradition of Bauhaus photography. The design and production of the book rigorously follow traditional rules: the photographs, varnish-sealed in the costly tritone process, were printed on Phoenixmotion-Xanthur paper. The book block was laid out as a Japanese brochure and cased in cloth binding with a two-color brass-stamped plate.
Karl Otto Lagerfeld (Hamburg, September 10, 1933 - Neuilly-sur-Seine, February 19, 2019) was a German fashion designer, artist, and photographer who lived and worked mainly in Paris since 1952.
He was one of the most influential couturiers of the late twentieth and early twenty-first century and was also active in other creative fields, notably photography.
