This is Arthur Elgort’s first comprehensive book, showing his world-renowned fashion imagery alongside his personal work. The book spans Elgort’s five-decade career and illustrates his longevity as an emulated fashion photographer. His lively and casual shooting style is significantly influenced by a lifelong love of music and dance, particularly jazz and ballet.

Elgort’s 1971 debut in British Vogue created a sensation in the fashion world where his soon-to-be iconic “snapshot” style and emphasis on movement and natural light transcended norms of fashion photography. Elgort subsequently rose to fame working for such distinguished magazines as American, French and Italian Vogue, Interview, GQ, Life and Rolling Stone; and shooting advertising campaigns for fashion labels including Chanel, Valentino and Yves Saint Laurent.
