(Photography) Newton, Helmut.
Big Nudes.
A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. With his Big Nudes, in the 1980s Helmut Newton created a quite unprecedented long-term bestseller. Simultaneously, it provided a concentrated image of his aesthetic agenda. Powerful women were presented in all their naked truth without fig leaves or fashion frills. This series of black-and-white photos, produced between 1979 and 1981, also marked a stylistic change in Newton's work. Elaborate layouts full of luxury and decadence gave way to an unambiguously formulated and monumental statement "Here they come!" Dressed only in their indispensable high heels, Newton's amazons selfconfidently paraded on show. They rippled their muscles and marched individually as well as in formation toward the observer.

(Photography) Newton, Helmut.
Pola Woman.
A Fine copy in a Fine paperback binding. Newton's erotic nudes. What a sketch is for the painter is a Polaroid for the photographer, namely the first formulation of a concept, the raw material of the imagination, as it were. When Helmut Newton published a selection of his Polaroids in Pola Woman in 1992, the subculture called it a stroke of genius. It was the first time that the master let people look directly over his shoulder. We became witnesses to the magic and often intense process by which erotic fantasies become finished images; preliminary stages of a perfectly styled Newton photograph. It is remarkable, if not astonishing, that even this "raw material" possesses very original qualities and a charm of its own.

Sleepless Nights.
A Fine copy in a Fine bright dust jacket. This collection of photographs gathers images of women which make use of surrealism, fantasy, eroticism, and mystery to convey a sense of shock. Newton established a particular style marked by erotic, stylised scenes, often with sado-masochistic and fetishistic subtexts and as a result carved a photographic niche that he filled like no one else..

Brassai (Gyula Halász).
Paris By Night.
A Fine tight copy in a Near fine unclipped dust jacket with a few spots of laminate separation at the spine, otherwise Fine. Brassai moved from Berlin to Paris in 1924 and took a job as a journalist and photographer. His job often allowed him to wander the night streets. Armed with his camera, he captured the essence of the city in his photographs, publishing his first book of photographs in 1933 titled Paris de nuit (Paris by Night). His efforts met with great success, resulting in his being called "the eye of Paris" in an essay by his friend Henry Miller. In addition to photos of the seedier side of Paris, he also provided scenes from the life of the city's high society, its intellectuals, its ballet, and the grand operas. This volume collects many of his most famous Paris images.

[Paris in the 1920s] Ray, Man (Emmanuel Radnitzky).
Self Portrait.
A Near Fine copy in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with light rubbing and wear to the extremities and a small closed edgetear.

He was an important part of the Dadaist and then the Surrealist movements becoming the ultimate bohemian hob-nobbing with all of the influential creative people wherever he was including Picasso, Duchamp, Brancusi, Tristan Tzara and Dali. This straight forward autobiography also addresses his love affairs with some of the most interesting women in Paris and his relationships with others including model and photographer Lee Miller.

[Paris in the 20s] Brassai.
Paris by Night.
A Fine copy in a Very Good unclipped dust jacket with peeling to the jacket laminate. Arriving in Paris in 1924, Brassaï rapidly became a shrewd observer of nocturnal Parisian life. He sensed that photography was the tool that would allow him to document his vision of a dying society. Fascinated by the night, which he found disconcerting, enigmatic, and suggestive, Brassaï photographed its every aspect, from police to prostitutes to the homeless to socialites, all in a dreamlike and mysterious manner. In sixty-four images, Brassaï succeeded in remarkably capturing this unique ambience. This book, meticulously assembled by Brassaï himself, signifies the birth of the artist. Brassaï, originally from Hungary, traveled to Paris in 1924, where he began to associate with the avant-garde artist community, in particular with Picasso and the Parisian surrealist circles. He quickly established himself as one of the most original photographers of his generation.

[Paris iPhotography] Brassai.
The Secret Paris of the 30's.
A Fine copy in a Very Good dust jacket with small edge tears, edge wear and creasing. The Secret Paris of the '30s is one of the most evocative photographic memoirs ever published. For years it was known that Brassai had taken a series of 'secret photographs' which could not be published because of their daring nature. Alone, or in the company of friends, he discovered the forbidden Paris of the 1930s - its brothels, whores, pimps, and opium dens - the sordid yet bewitching bas-monde where high society mingled with the underworld. Brassai's photographs reveal a milieu previously known only through books such as the novels of Henry Miller (a frequent companion on his nocturnal rambles): the seamy, grimy yet infinitely exciting reality that tourists still think of when they seek 'Paris by night'. These fascinating images are accompanied by Brassai's own text, in which he describes the extraordinary conditions under which he took his photographs.

[Photography] Burke, Carolyn.
Lee Miller: A Life.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket . This excellent biography of noted photographer and model Lee Miller deftly chronicles her early life, which includes a questionable relationship with her father and a childhood rape, her photographic apprenticeship and romance with Man Ray in Paris in the Twenties, her journalistic experiences during WWII and her unconventional marriages. Lee Miller’s life embodied all the contradictions and complications of the twentieth century: a model and photographer, muse and reporter, sexual adventurer and domestic goddess, she was also America's first female war correspondent. Carolyn Burke reveals how the muse who inspired Man Ray, Cocteau, and Picasso could be the same person who unflinchingly photographed the horrors of Buchenwald and Dachau. Burke captures all the verve and energy of Miller’s life: from her early childhood trauma to her stint as a Vogue model and art-world ingénue, from her harrowing years as a war correspondent to her unconventional marriages and passion for gourmet cooking. A lavishly illustrated story of art and beauty, sex and power, Modernism and Surrealism, Lee Miller illuminates an astonishing woman’s journey from art object to artist. Illustrated with photographs.

White Women.
A Fine copy in a Fine price-clipped dust jacket. White Women, Helmut Newton's legendary first work, appeared more than twenty years ago. With its superior mixture of aesthetics, technical perfection and bourgeois decadence it has lost nothing of its potency and attractiveness. Newton's work encompasses a wealth of themes, also embodying facets of the mass-media world of glamour, masquerade and show. Using subtle, yet striking images--like those of Paloma Picasso, Veruschka, Elsa Peretti, Karl Lagerfeld, David Hockney, and Charlotte Rampling--Newton embraces the delicate, natural beauty of the naked female body. White Women is a masterpiece of erotic visual literature.

Man Ray: Photography and It's Double.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine dust jacket. Man Ray (1890-1976), was one of the co-founders of New York Dada. When he arrived in Paris in the 1920s he was already friends with Duchamp and many Parisian Surrealists, who welcomed him with great enthusiasm. He is unquestionably recognized as the most original photographer of our century.With his photographs, Rayographs, solarizations, and various experimentation with Surrealist doctrines in the darkroom, his photographic contribution to art and especially surrealism is matchless. Thanks to his famous portraits of contemporaries - artists, writers and celebrities - he also became the most notable chronicler of the inter-national Avant-garde movement of the 1920s and 1930s. This monograph, published to coincide with the historic exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, is entirely dedicated to Man Ray's photographic oeuvre. The Centre Pompidou is the recipient of the Man Ray archives - some 13,000 negatives and 5,000 prints - which reveal for the very first time never before published photographs (a great amount consisting of erotic compositions). One-third of these photographs have never been seen. Not only the finished photos, but also the process - crops, background manipulation and other methods. The book with its new images presents for the very first time a true picture of the artist, and a vital addition to the many publications about Man Ray that appeared throughout this century, many of which are long out of print. This monograph is a must for Man Ray experts, for those interested in photography, and a wonderful introduction to students and others not yet sufficiently familiar with Man Ray's work.
