Chanel: Collections and Creations
Chanel: Collections and
Chanel's combination of tradition, originality and style has always made it the most seductive of brands. Here the House of Chanel opens its private archives, revealing a galaxy of brilliant designs created by Coco Chanel from the 1920s onwards, and now reinterpreted to become the motifs for brand new garments, accessories and beauty products. Inspired by the House's signature fragrance, the legendary ‘Chanel No 5’, the book explores five central themes – the suit, the camellia, jewelry, fragrances and make-up, and the little black dress – and follows the threads from past to present to show how these key items have been rediscovered and reinvented by fashion designers working in the footsteps of their illustrious predecessors. This visual journey is enhanced by previously unpublished archive photographs and original drawings by Karl Lagerfeld, as well as glorious images from some of the greatest names in fashion photography. Dazzling clothes, intricate accessories, beautiful models and timeless design leave no doubt as to the lasting fame of the brand and embody everything that has come to symbolize the magic of Chanel. llustrations: 159

Black and White Photography: 12 Secrets to Master The Art of Black and White Photography
Black and White Photography: 12 Secrets to Master
Master The Beautiful Art of Black & White Photography Today!Black and white photography is considered by some to be more difficult than color photography, simply because color ceases to be an element in the finished product. However, it is still an element to be considered while shooting, because color affects what greys, whites, and blacks you get as a result. Black and white can make your photos much more simple, pared down to the basics. This can make photographs appear more serious or scary, or even take away considerations of decade or century. Photographs also need different development in post, as well as different considerations for grain.Here Is A Quick Preview Of What You'll Learn Inside...Deciding whether or not to shoot in black and white: there is no right or wrong answer; it’s all subjective. I give some of my own personal reasons for choosing black and white over color. They can be for aesthetic consideration, or to make an image less distracting.Tonal differences and contrast: I explain why color is still important, because the color content of a scene will affect your tonal ranges. Contrast is also important because it affects the lights and darks, blacks and whites in a scene and also changes the emotional impact of an image.Being technically competent: This t...

Gordon Parks: How the Photographer Captured Black and White America
Gordon Parks: How the Photographer Captured Black and
His white teacher tells her all-black class, You’ll all wind up porters and waiters. What did she know? Gordon Parks is most famous for being the first black director in Hollywood. But before he made movies and wrote books, he was a poor African American looking for work. When he bought a camera, his life changed forever. He taught himself how to take pictures and before long, people noticed. His success as a fashion photographer landed him a job working for the government. In Washington DC, Gordon went looking for a subject, but what he found was segregation. He and others were treated differently because of the color of their skin. Gordon wanted to take a stand against the racism he observed. With his camera in hand, he found a way. Told through lyrical verse and atmospheric art, this is the story of how, with a single photograph, a self-taught artist got America to take notice.
