Richard Avedon Photographs 1946 2004 Book Description:

In August 2007 Denmark's renowned Louisiana Museum of Modern Art presented "Richard Avedon: Photographs 1946-2004," the first major retrospective devoted to Avedon's work since his death in 2004. This beautifully produced catalogue, designed by the renowned Danish graphic designer Michael Jensen, features deluxe tritone printing and varnish on premium paper. It includes 125 reproductions of Avedon's greatest work from the entire range of his oeuvre-including fashion photographs, reportage and portraits-and spans from his early Italian subjects of the 1940s to his 2004 portrait of the Icelandic pop star Bjork. It also features a small number of color images, including what must be one of the most famous photographic portraits of the twentieth century, "Nastassja Kinski and the Serpent" (1981). Texts by Jeffrey Fraenkel, Judith Thurman, Geoff Dyer, Christoph Ribbat, Rune Gade and curator Helle Crenzien offer a sophisticated and thorough composite view of Avedon's career.

Avedon Book Description:

An intimate biography of Richard Avedon, the legendary fashion and portrait photographer who “helped define America’s image of style, beauty and culture” (The New York Times), by his longtime collaborator and business partner Norma Stevens and award-winning author Steven M. L. Aronson. Richard Avedon was arguably the world’s most famous photographer—as artistically influential as he was commercially successful. Over six richly productive decades, he created landmark advertising campaigns, iconic fashion photographs (as the star photographer for Harper’s Bazaar and then Vogue), groundbreaking books, and unforgettable portraits of everyone who was anyone. He also went on the road to find and photograph remarkable uncelebrated faces, with an eye toward constructing a grand composite picture of America. Avedon dazzled even his most dazzling subjects. He possessed a mystique so unique it was itself a kind of genius—everyone fell under his spell. But the Richard Avedon the world saw was perhaps his greatest creation: he relentlessly curated his reputation and controlled his image, managing to remain, for all his exposure, among the most private of celebrities. No one knew him better than did Norma Stevens, who for thirty years was his business partner and closest confidant. In Avedon: Something Personal—equal parts memoir, biography, and oral history, including an intimate portrait of the legendary Avedon studio—Stevens and co-author Steven M. L. Aronson masterfully trace Avedon’s life from his birth to his death, in 2004, at the age of eighty-one, while at work in Texas for The New Yorker (whose first-ever staff photographer he had become in 1992). The book contains startlingly candid reminiscences by Mike Nichols, Calvin Klein, Claude Picasso, Renata Adler, Brooke Shields, David Remnick, Naomi Campbell, Twyla Tharp, Jerry Hall, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Bruce Weber, Cindy Crawford, Donatella Versace, Jann Wenner, and Isabella Rossellini, among dozens of others. Avedon: Something Personal is the confiding, compelling full story of a man who for half a century was an enormous influence on both high and popular culture, on both fashion and art—to this day he remains the only artist to have had not one but two retrospectives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art during his lifetime. Not unlike Richard Avedon’s own defining portraits, the book delivers the person beneath the surface, with all his contradictions and complexities, and in all his touching humanity.

The Beauty Quotient Formula Book Description:

'This book is a must-read for anyone who might seek personal, and perhaps, physical and psychological changes in their lives.' Raymond LaRaja, M.D., clinical professor of surgery at Mt. Sinai Medical School and former clinical professor of surgery at New York University Medical School. Gorgeous faces stare out at us from the pages of glossy magazines or appear larger-than-life on television and movie screens. With role models such as these, it's easy to find yourself wanting. During his 25-year career as a plastic surgeon, Robert M. Tornambe, M.D., has worked with thousands of women and spent countless hours contemplating the nature of beauty - particularly in situations where he was asked to perform a procedure he believed would diminish his patient's natural good looks. In an attempt to provide as many options as possible, he focused on helping women understand that while surgery has its place, it isn't the only roadmap to looking and feeling great. This led Dr. Tornambe to devise The Beauty Quotient Formula - a healthier way to look at beauty. While physical traits do play a role, Dr. Tornambe shows us that what makes any woman truly attractive is based largely on confidence, charisma, personality and a solid beauty routine - and that more often than not, going under the knife isn't necessary. The Beauty Quotient Formula will help you transform yourself with a no-fail method for looking and feeling more beautiful!
