It's that busy time of the year. Gallery shows, book releases, upcoming tours, etc. My DVD producers are still working on the distribution details with Sony, but they do believe my DVD will be out in February followed by a tour of release parties. It's gonna be a crazy-ass 2005 (I always do better in odd-numbered years for some reason even though I prefer even numbers to odd numbers. Oh well...)
TWO NEW PHOTO COMPILATION BOOKS OUT NOW!
The most beautiful and impressive is
WILD: FASHION UNTAMED (The Metropolitan Museum of Art & Yale University Press)
WILD examines how animal fur and skin have come to define ideals of femininity by quoting the physical and sexual characteristics of birds and beasts. Examples include an unprecedented array of designs by Azzedine Alaïa, Roberto Cavalli, Dolce and Gabbana, John Galliano for Christian Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, Thierry Mugler, and Yohji Yamamoto. Photography by Richard Avedon, William Claxton, Irving Penn, Steve Diet Goedde, Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Linbergh, and more.
This book accompanies an exhibition of fashion at The Metropolitan Museum of Art (November 9, 2004, to February 13, 2005).
