Stern Portfolio #30 - Karl Lagerfield - Dreams
Lagerfiled, Karl For decades the king of Paris fashion, Karl Lagerfeld is an artist whose work comes to life in front of the camera. But what happens when this legendary designer steps behind the lens? Magic, mystery, and more, as is evidenced by this volume of beautiful, sensual, and imaginative images that reveals an entirely new dimension to Lagerfeld's genius. Spanning all aspects of the genre from classic to avant-garde, these photographs-many of which have never before been published-recall the work of Atget, Richter, and Peter Lindbergh. Scenes of Paris streets and buildings, fashion models, celebrities, nudes, still-lives, and other objects of beauty provide insight into Lagerfeld's aesthetic. And his discerning eye captures the life of high fashion, while also possessing a reverence for the unexpected moment. Known for his exacting demands when designing and producing clothing, Lagerfeld is an equally precise photographer. His technical skills, use of lighting, and sense of composition rival that of his most accomplished contemporaries. Anyone new to the talents of Karl Lagerfeld will discover a practiced and often surprising sensibility, while his many fans will delight in the designer's newest collection, one that exposes him truly to be a man of many talents.
