about this item

Brimming with Steve Hiett's riotously colorful photographs that evoke the trends and styles of their eras, this retrospective volume features images--most of which have never been published in book form--from a career that spans five decades. Since the late 1960s Steve Hiett has been capturing the changing world of fashion through his distinctive, eye-catchingphotography. Arranged by decades, this collection of Hiett's work is filled with images that belie the photographer'snonchalance. Saturated with color, lighted by dazzling flashwork, and often off-center, Hiett's photographs containbrilliantly composed worlds. They tell stories--and the storieschange with time. Whether it's 1970s Miami, France in the1980s, or New York at the end of the 20th century, Hiett createsan of-the-moment impression that feels neither contrived norself-conscious. Of his illustrious career, Hiett has said "I don'tthink of myself as 'a photographer.' I think of myself as someonewho uses the camera to create images that I see in my head."A brief introduction provides an insightful contrast to Hiett'sdescription of himself. The beautifully reproduced images in thisbook are further testament to Steve Hiett's enduring imprint onthe world of fashion photography.
