Horst P. Horst: In Color
Edited by Gert Elfering, Manfred Heiting, Beda Achermann. Text by Susanna Brown.
Rare and unseen Horst in color, from fashion studies to travel photography
While Horst P. Horst is primarily famous for his classic photographs in black and white, this book foregrounds his extraordinary talent as a colorist. Horst first experimented with color film in the late 1930s, embracing the then new vibrant Kodachrome technology. In Horst Color we discover both early and late examples of his diverse output, from nostalgic travel pictures to dazzling fashion studies, pastel-hued still lifes, environmental portraits and studies of glamorous houses and gardens. Selected by renowned creative director Beda Achermann, who was given full access to Horst’s expansive archive—the home of many unpublished pictures and unprinted negatives—the photographs in this book demonstrate Horst’s impeccable taste, his eye for beauty and his technical finesse, and are sure to surprise even connoisseurs of his oeuvre.
Horst P. Horst (1906–99) was one of the 20th century’s master photographers. He launched his career in the melting pot of 1930s Paris, where he befriended such influential figures as Coco Chanel and Salvador Dalí and began his lifelong association with Vogue. Over the next 60 years Horst established his international reputation through his work in Vogue and other magazines, including Vanity Fair and House & Garden. His photography has been the subject of major exhibitions including Horst: A Retrospective at the International Center of Photography (1996) and Horst: Photographer of Style at the Victoria and Albert Museum (2014–15).
