David Hockney: Photographs
By David Hockney.
Selected from more than 20,000 images, this book marked the first publication of photographs by David Hockney. Each carries the very same qualities that distinguish the artist’s painted work—serene light, rhapsodic colour and subtle eccentricity.
Comprising his early self-portraits, his photographic studies for corresponding paintings and the later development of his “cubist” collage technique, this book also features portraits of friends and lovers. Peter Schlesinger, Christopher Isherwood, Rudolf Nureyev and Cecil Beaton all coexist between these pages.
This first edition includes a personal history written by Hockney describing the development of his photographer from its nascent stages to its conceptual blossoming.
