Eleven. Philip-Lorca diCorcia.
Photographs by Philip-Lorca diCorcia
Published by Freedman Damiani. First Edition edition, April 30, 2011.
[Purchase: Freedman Damiani]
Between 1997 and 2008 Philip-Lorca diCorcia completed eleven photographic portfolios in collaboration with W Magazine’s creative director Dennis Freedman who has been creative director at W Magazine, that together stand as one of the most ambitious editorial projects of the last decade. Together diCorcia and Freedman spanned the globe visiting locations such Havana, Paris, Bangkok, St. Petersburg, Los Angeles, and New York. The locations included a Lautner house in LA, the Mariinsky Opera House in St. Petersburg, Windows on the World atop the World Trade Center, and an notorious “club echangiste” (French swinger club) in Paris. The cast of characters included iconic models Nadja Auermann, Guinevere, Kristen McMenamy, Karen Elson, Shalom Harlow and Hannelore Knuts as well as actresses such as Isabelle Hupert and designer Marc Jacobs in addition to locals who were street cast. The stories were notable for their length and for the enigmatic and sometime veiled narratives. This is the first time all of these stories are gathered and published together. (publisher’s note)
TOM by Doug Rickard
Published by Little Big Man, 2013. Edition of 300.
[Purchase: sold out]
"Drawing its name from that of a peeping Tom, TOM unearths vintage found images that show the voyeuristic surveillance of a certain archetype of woman in the streets of 1960s Los Angeles. The subjects of each photograph are stockinged, short skirted, and stylish—and as seen longingly through someone else’s lens—clearly an object of desire and interest".
