DIOR GLAMOUR: 1952-1962
by Mark Shaw
In this book, the legendary photographer Mark Shaw communicates Dior’s message chronicling his experience with the fashion creator and capturing  his  collections from the 1950s and ’60s. His  photographs reproduce the glamour of the time  and his portraits  “describe”  the most extraordinary fashion of the era – models, actresses, social moments, and, of course,  the  haute couture all designed by Dior. Shaw’s work serves as an unrivaled source of such great fashion moments; giving  the sense of context he has changed  the way of fashion photography forever. In this book appear about 200 color and black-and-white photographs, some of them recently discovered in a secret vault of his estate.

THE AUTHOR . Mark Shaw (1921 –1969) famous and iconic American fashion photographer, was mentored by creative director  Alexey Brodovitch. His photos appeared in Esquire, Harper’s Bazaar, Mademoiselle, but he primarily worked for Life Magazine from 1952 to 1968.  His subject varied from the Kennedys before and during their presidential successes  to  the young Audrey Hepburn.  In 1964, many of these images were published in the book The John F. Kennedys: A Family Album, which became a bestseller.
