Louise Dahl-Wolfe

"Under Carmel (Snow)'s sponsorship, the great new young writers of the era, like Carson McCullers and Eudora Welty, were published, and I had the opportunity to do their portraits. Carmel had the most darling sense of humor. I sparred with her but she was imaginative and protective. She was responsible for making the Bazaar in those days much more interesting, and less conservative, than Vogue. People say I was demanding, and I guess I did drive my models hard. I was teased by my models for saying, 'Hold it! Hold it!" all the time. I suppose I stormed a lot, but in the end, we'd all have a drink together." –Louise Dahl-Wolfe, 1984.
Dahl-Wolfe's cover for the November, 1949 issue of Harper's Bazaar is reproduced from the exciting new monograph from Aperture.

Louise Dahl-Wolfe

This 1942 portrait of Diana Vreeland in Phoenix, Arizona, is reproduced from Aperture's remarkable new monograph on the pioneering fashion photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe. Together with Vreeland, Carmel Snow and Alexey Brodovitch, Dahl-Wolfe helped revitalize Harper's Bazaar, ushering in its golden age. Over 22 years there, she experimented with black-and-white, early color, natural light in outdoor settings and stories set in exotic locations—virtually creating the genre of modern fashion photography. Bazaar published more than 600 of her color photographs, 86 covers, and thousands of black-and-white photos. Her work influenced all of the great photographers of her day, including Richard Avedon, Horst P. Horst and Irving Penn. And yet, until now, her work has been virtually forgotten. We highly recommend a second look.

Lipstick Flavor: A Contemporary Art Story with Photography

Mickalene Thomas' 2008 "Portrait of Qusuquzah" (reproduced here), Juergen Teller's 2004 nude self-portrait with cigarette and lipstick, Stephen Shore's 1973 photograph of a Palm Beach Matron in feather boa, and Linder's 1977 photo collage of a woman with an iron for a head and smiling, lipsticked mouths for nipples, are just a few of the iconic and provocative images collected in Damiani's new compendium of mouthy, lipsticky art photographs. "Why is it that lipstick—and by extension lips themselves—have written so many stories," Jérôme Sans and Marla Hamburg Kennedy ask in their Introduction. "Lipstick is ultimately an evocative or provocative sociocultural aspect of a situation, a way to tell a story without voice, but with a taste that lingers."

Imagining the Future Art Book
Sharon Helgason Gallagher

Future of the Art Book

"Paging through a book is like closing a door behind you that simultaneously opens another onto a new room -- all the while keeping the previous room available, just behind the now-closed door of the turned page. Here I am in the hallway of the introduction..." -- excerpt from Sharon Helgason Gallagher's remarks at the New York Public Library panel discussion The Future of the Art Book
