"Vogue s Book of Houses, Gardens, People" (1968) was a landmark publication among decorating books, and it chronicles an important chapter in the history of "Vogue." "Vogue" s Horst P. Horst, a leading fashion photographer of his time, developed an intense interest in seeing the world s great homes and meeting their owners; beginning in the early 1960s, he journeyed in an elite world that would soon be lost. With accompanying lyrical essays about homes and their occupants by the famed writer Valentine Lawford (Horst s partner in work and life), the book is a virtual who s who of society, politics, and the arts in the mid-20th century. "Around That Time" showcases much of the material featured in the original book, plus never-before-seen photographs from those homes as well as images from additional homes Horst shot well into the 1980s. This book introduces this work to a new generation of design, decorating, and visual art professionals, academics, and enthusiasts."

From the haute couture runways of Paris and New York and editorial photo shoots for glossy fashion magazines to reality television, models have been a ubiquitous staple of twentieth- and twenty-first-century American consumer culture. In Work! Elspeth H. Brown traces the history of modeling from the advent of photographic modeling in the early twentieth century to the rise of the supermodel in the 1980s. Brown outlines how the modeling industry sanitized and commercialized models' sex appeal in order to elicit and channel desire into buying goods. She shows how this new form of sexuality—whether exhibited in the Ziegfeld Follies girls' performance of Anglo-Saxon femininity or in African American models' portrayal of black glamour in the 1960s—became a central element in consumer capitalism and a practice that has always been shaped by queer sensibilities. By outlining the paradox that queerness lies at the center of capitalist heteronormativity and telling the largely unknown story of queer models and photographers, Brown offers an out of the ordinary history of twentieth-century American culture and capitalism.

Editor’s note : These definitions err on the side of succinctness and are intended to be beginning points for the serious student. An attempt to standardize terminology commonly found in the medium of fine arts photographs that avoids copyrighted term or trade names (‘‘dye-destruction print’’ in lieu of ‘‘Cibachrome’’ and so on) has been made using guidelines set forth by the J. Paul Getty Institute. In acknowledgment of the increase in collecting vintage prints and the perennial interest in historical processes, many nineteenth century processes and obsolete terms are included. Cross referencing within the glossary is indicated by italics; encyclopedia entries are indicated by small capitals. Additive colors The primary colors of red, green and blue which are mixed to form all other colors in photo- graphic reproduction. See entry COLOR THEORY: NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC . Agfacolor Trade name for a subtractive color film manufactured by the European company Agfa-Gevaert; analogous to Kodachrome and Ansocolor. Albumen print Prints obtained from a process in wide use during the nineteenth century in which paper is prepared with an albumen emulsion obtained from egg whites and made light sensitive with a silver nitrate solution. See also Collodion process ; Dry plate processes . Amberlith An orange acetate historically used for masking mechanicals during the process of preparing plates for commercial printing. The area so masked photographs as black to the camera, printing clear on the resulting positive film. See also Rubylith . Ambrotype An image created by the collodion process, historically on glass, which gives the illusion of being positive when placed against a dark backing, often a layer of black lacquer, paper, or velvet. Also see Ferrotype . Anamorphic image An image featuring differing scales of magnification across the picture plane, especially varying along the vertical and horizontal axes, with the result being extreme distortion. Aniline A rapid-drying oil-based solvent used in the preparation of dyes and inks for photographic applications. Aniline process A method of making prints directly from line art (drawings) on translucent materials bypassing the need for a negative. Also see Diazo process . Aniline printing See Flexography . Angle of incidence The measurement in degrees in terms of the deviation from the perpendicular of the angle at which light hits a surface. Angle of view The measurement in degrees of the angle formed by lines projected from the optical center of a lens to the edges of the field of view. This measurement is used to identify lenses and their appropriateness to capture various widths or degrees of actual space in a photographic representation, thus an extreme telephoto lens captures between 6 and 15

Fashion and fashion photography reflect the times that produce them; they are snapshots of an era and communicate the attitudes of a generation. The fashion photographer, like the fashion designer, has to anticipate trends, visualize ideas, and do this via images that men and women can identify with, whether consciously or unconsciously. This stunning new compendium of fashion photography (and art photography that documents fashion) contains images made as early as the 1840s and leads all the way up to today. There are society photographs, nudes, conceptual works, abstractions and documentary images. Photographers include Hill and Adamson, Madame d Ora, George Hoyningen-Huene, Yva, Regina Relang, Man Ray, Richard Avedon, Guy Bourdin, Robert Mapplethorpe, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Annie Leibovitz, Herlinde Koelbl, David LaChapelle, Peter Lindbergh, Wolfgang Tillmans, Merry Alpern, Ralph Gibson, Martin Kippenberger, Irving Penn, Edward Steichen, Cindy Sherman, and many others. Exquisitely printed on deluxe paper, The Heartbeat of Fashionwill appeal equally to lovers of fashion and photography, and makes an ideal gift for anyone with impeccable taste and an interest in the history of aesthetics.
