In and Out of Fashion
Following the success of Parasomnia, this major new book focuses on the fashion photography of Viviane Sassen.
Bringing together 17 years of work in the fashion world, this eye-catching volume features selections from Sassen’s awardwinning series and campaigns for Stella McCartney, Adidas, Carven, Bergdorf Goodman, MiuMiu, and M Missoni, along with editorials for magazines such as the New York Times Magazine, i-D, Numéro, Purple, AnOther Magazine, Dazed &Confused, Fantastic Man, and POP. Sassen’s intuitive and imaginative style can be flamboyant, contemplative, erotic, and surreal, often simultaneously. This volume includes essays that offer a context for Sassen’s work in the history of fashion photography as well as a bibliography of nearly all of her fashion series. The book will be a delight for Sassen’s many fans and those eager for inspiration or beautiful escape.
“The work is alive, fearless, visionary… The book is energetic—the pages almost seem to turn themselves, and you get the feeling that Sassen’s ideas never stop.” —Feature Shoot
»Mit ihren Farbfotografien, die oftmals eine stark abstrahierte, fast surreale Bildspreche erzählen, stieg Sassen im Laufe der letzten Jahre zu einer Ikone der Modefotografie auf.«
