Synopsis

Featuring stunning couture images, this book presents renowned fashion photographer Cathleen Naundorf's work with Polaroid photography from the past six years. Whether the incredible pieces of haute couture were designed by Chanel, Dior, Gaultier, Lacroix, Elie Saab, Philip Treacy, or Valentino, their beauty is preserved in the gorgeous images captured with a large-fromat camera using Polaroid material by Cathleen Naundorf and collected in this book. Her well-hned technique, insprired by her mentor Horst P. Horst, which combines instant film's distinctive colors and shadow with the artist's remarkable instinct, results in photographs that resemble paintings-haunting, muted, and raw. Not only are they a feast for fashion-hungry eyes, but they are also a testament to the talents of this young artist who has forged a formidable reputation in the fashion world.
