This beautiful and delicate book is one of the very great works of fashion photography.
Phenomenal book by Deborah Turbeville. She portrays in her own words “women... A little out of balance with their surroundings, waiting anxiously for the right person to find them, and thinking that perhaps they are out of their time...”
Her photographs are unsettling, something dark and suffused with sensual strangeness. Models and outfits are almost beside the point in her landscapes or derelict buildings.
Disconcerting atmospheres and pale colors in a masterpiece and breakthrough publication about modern fashion photography.
