About this product
- DescriptionWhen Jack Robinson died in 1997, few people knew that the very private artist, who lived in a tiny apartment in mid-town Memphis, had once been acclaimed as one of the great fashion and portrait photographers of the sixties and early seventies, as highly regarded as his contemporaries Irving Penn and Richard Avedon. The roll-call of subjects Jack photographed in his career reads like a definitive who's who of the period. From Vidal Sassoon to Michael Caine, from Tina Turner to The Who, from Tom Wolfe to Lauren Bacall. Robinson photographed t only actors and entertainers but the writers, artists, fashion designers and politicians who shaped the cultural landscape of the sixties and early seventies. Rarely have his subjects - some of the most photographed individuals in the world - appeared so unguarded and at ease in front of the lens. A favourite of legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, Robinson's photographs appeared over 500 times in the magazine's People are Talking About section and Vogue's own Boutique . In late 1972, he left New York for Memphis and abandoned his photographic career for good. This impeccably produced book showcases 150 unforgettable images selected from the vast archive that makes up his extraordinary body of work. It re-establishes Jack Robinson's reputation as a master photographer of one of the twentieth-century's defining periods.
- Author BiographyJack Robinson was born in 1928 in Mississippi. His career as a photographer began during the early fifties in New Orleans where he documented the city's vibrant cultural scene. He moved to New York and as a fashion photographer, by the end of the fifties, his images were regularly featuring in Life and The New York Times. In 1961, Diana Vreeland described his portraits as 'perfectly beautiful... each [photo] has personality and a great deal of character - and that is your big strong point'. He continued to work with fashion editor Carrie Donovan at The New York Times until 1965 when he moved to Vogue and shot many of his most memorable images. George Perry, who wrote the introduction, is a former films editor of The Sunday Times and an author, journalist and broadcaster. He has worked with many great photographers on assignments. Cybill Shepherd, who has written the foreword, is an actress, singer and model who grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, a city that Jack Robinson called home. She is best known for her role in The Last Picture Show and the television series Moonlighting.
