Stevens, Jocelyn - PUBLIC APPEARANCES 1987-1991 SNOWDOWN
Lord Snowdon is undoubtedly the outstanding portrait photographer of his generation. From his innovative theatrical photography of the 1950s, through the important reportage photography of the 1960s and 1970s, to the portraits of today, Snowdon's versatility and sensitivity remain unmatched.
Public Appearances 1987-1991 presents not only photographs breathtaking in their apparent simplicity, but also photographs full of visual jokes - sitters occasionally in impossible positions, sometimes bearing improbable props. His subjects are drawn from a wide cross-section of the arts and public life: dancers, pop-stars, actors, writers, politicians, painters and designers.
From Leningrad to Prague, from New York to Paris, Snowdon's lens has captured celebrated men and women of our time and he is rightly landed as "one of the principal visual historians of the age" (Vogue). This transatlantic chronicle is one of the most important photographic books of the year, and will be enjoyed by photography buffs as well as followers of the arts and the beautiful people.
