André Carrara, Regards (Hardback)
How best to tell the life story of a fashion photographer? What was the common thread composing his career? How does his body of work and progression tie into the history of fashion photography?
Regards spans 4 decades of the extraordinary professional career of a photographer whose discretion and elegance are reflected in this
dedicated retrospective: a tribute to womanhood, to women in all their diversity, showcasing their timelessness, universality, sophistication, boldness, seductiveness, provocativeness and even at times their inaccessibility. A hymn exalting their beauty. This one-of-a-kind book, offering numerous iconic images, also delicately narrates how perception of this femininity has evolved over the years. But above all else, this book tells the story of a man’s love for women, who have always left him fascinated, amazed, overwhelmed and inspired.
This work is a confession of love for what women represent to him, a testimonial to how they move the photographer, who has never ceased to admire them with passion.
