Perfectly IntimateThe infinite subtlety of the female form Sensual and softly surreal, the nude photography of Ralph Gibson frames the female form both organically and graphically, referencing art history while also innovating in the arena of erotic imagery, at once summoning visceral sensation and calling out for tactile attention. Thumb through this exquisite tribute to the contours and curves of womanhood and experience the intimacy of the photographic lens. Reviving TASCHEN's sold-out Collector's Edition, this tribute gathers the best of Gibson's exquisite nudes alongside some of his most recent works in an accessible, revised format, complete with a fresh in-depth interview by Eric Fischl. Strikingly graphic, meticulously composed, and loaded with subtle provocations, the master photographer's mysterious, dreamlike images pay homage to greats such as Man Ray and Edward Weston, while continually pursuing new frontiers. "A photographer once said that beauty in women is endless. Perhaps it was I who said it. [...] I love photographing women and could say that the form of the female body is absolute and perfect." --Ralph Gibson "Ralph Gibson practices the nude like a musician tirelessly rehearsing his scales. A beautiful, imposing book." -- NUMERO, Paris

Jean Pagliuso is a world-class fashion photographer whose photographs of fashion models and film stars from Susan Sarandon to Sophia Loren filled the pages of Vogue and Rolling Stone for nearly three decades. But for her most recent work, Pagliuso trained her lens on a much less conventional subject: the chicken. An homage to her childhood in Southern California, where she helped her father breed and show Bantam Cochins, Poultry Suite showcases more than twenty breeds of chickens--from Sebrights to Spangled Hamburgs--as they have never before been seen. Just as in conventional fashion photography, Pagliuso has applied her well-developed eye to creating interesting compositions while also bringing out each subject's unique beauty and personality. In one photograph, a plump hen stares head-on at the camera through a mass of white feathers. In another, a proud red-combed rooster turns to peer curiously at the camera. Each portrait in Poultry Suite features a chicken arranged against a simple background, encouraging viewers to explore the animals' anthropomorphic traits. The photographs are complemented by an accessible collection of texts. Carefully designed by Shahid and Company, New York, and with reproductions of nearly fifty photographs, Poultry Suite impeccably applies the aesthetic excellence of fashion photography to form a true appreciation of the diversity of these birds.

Ein einzigartiger Einblick in das persönliche und kreative Leben des visionären Künstlers David Lynch, erzählt von ihm selbst und seinen engsten Kollegen, Freunden und Verwandten. In einer faszinierenden Mischung aus Biografie und Memoire schreibt David Lynch erstmals über seine vielen Kämpfe und auch Niederlagen; wie kompliziert es oft war, seine zahlreichen unorthodoxen Projekte zu verwirklichen. Lynch kommentiert ungefiltert und auf sehr offene Art und Weise die biografischen Ausführungen seiner Co-Autorin Kristine McKenna, die für das Buch über hundert Interviews mit erstaunlich gesprächigen Ex-Frauen, Familienmitgliedern, Schauspielern, Agenten, Musikern und sonstigen Kollegen geführt hat. Traumwelten ist ein besonderes Buch, das dem Leser eine tiefe Einsicht in das Leben und die Gedankenwelt eines der schillerndsten und originellsten Künstlers unserer Zeit gewährt.
