A Singular Elegance

By Adolph de Meyer

Without the eye of Baron Adolph de Meyer, the art of fashion photography would not be what it is today. A Singular Elegance is a fascinating study of one of the most brilliant and prodigious photographers in the fields of portraiture and fashion. With over 100 illustrations, this book presents a comprehensive look at de Meyer's stunning photography. Anne Ehrenkranz's informative essay provides us with new insights into the life, the mind, and the work of de Meyer. Intuitively combining Pictorialist practices with his own aesthetic sensibility, de Meyer achieved in his work a luminosity and beauty that remain a vital legacy to the genre.
