Frank Horvat: Photographic Autobiography
Text by Frank Horvat.
Now in his late eighties, the Croatian-born, France-based photographer Frank Horvat (born 1928), a pioneering fashion photographer and one of the first professional photographers to use Photoshop, can look back at around 70 years of activity and a dazzling career.
With this volume, Horvat furnishes us with a personal insight into his long life. This autobiography-in-pictures reveals personal moments from all phases of his life: we see his family and his friends, witness the arc of his extraordinary career, and encounter the great themes of humankind, such as birth and death. These are everyday images, but the quality of the photographs speaks for itself. In the appendix, Horvat comments, often at length, on each of the pictures.
