Erwin Blumenfeld: Meine 100 Besten Fotos. Biography by Hendel Teicher. Benteli Verlag, Bern, 1979. 139 pp. First edition. Hardbound in photo-illustrated dust jacket. Numerous full-page black-and-white reproductions.
During the 1930s, 40s, and 50s, Blumenfeld (1897–1969) was a regular contributor to both Harper’s Bazaar and Cosmopolitan magazines. He employed a sensitive color palette to phenomenal ends, creating a delicate mood in his images that betrays both a love for fashion and an abiding attraction to women. He cast an indelible influence on American fashion photography in the 1940s and 50s. Chiefly known for his editorial and advertising work, Blumenfeld's photographs are rich in their hybrid imagery, melding celebrities, saturated colour, strong black and white graphical images, and eroticism.
