About the book
With more than 140 of her best images reproduced in stunning tritone, including many never published before and others not seen since they appeared in the pages of the legendary Harper's Bazaar of the 1950s, Lillian Bassman: Women offers a retrospective view of an extraordinary career in photography.
At 91 and still hard at work, Bassman is a beloved figure in the pantheon of fashion photographers. Her signature style, once described by Richard Avedon as making "visible that heart-breaking invisible place between the appearance and the disappearance of things," offered a sensuous and intimate vision of modern women. Says Judith Thurman, "Bassman's women--perennially soulful,elusively chic--have the poignance of an endangered species."
Well-known art writer and journalist Deborah Solomon contributes an introduction. An illustrated chronology gives a cinematic overview of a remarkable life.
