Since the late 1960s Steve Hiett has been capturing the changing world of fashion through his distinctive, eye-catching photography. Arranged by decades, this collection of Hiett's work is filled with images that belie the photographer's nonchalance. Saturated with colour, lighted by dazzling flash work, and often off-center, Hiett's photographs contain brilliantly composed worlds. They tell stories-and the stories change with time. Whether it's 1970s Miami, France in the 1980s or New York at the end of the 20th century, Hiett creates an of-the-moment impression that feels neither contrived nor self-conscious. Of his illustrious career, Hiett has said "I don't think of myself as 'a photographer.' I think of myself as someone who uses the camera to create images that I see in my head." A brief introduction provides an insightful contrast to Hiett's description of himself. The beautifully reproduced images in this book are further testament to Steve Hiett's enduring imprint on the world of fashion photography.
