25 years of Jamie Hewlett: from Gorillaz to The Suggestionists

25 years of Jamie Hewlett: from Gorillaz to The Suggestionists – From Tank Girl to art-pop phenomenon Gorillaz, Jamie Hewlett is one of the most energetic pop culture figures of the past 20 years. This TASCHEN edition, Hewlett’s first major monograph, gathers more than 400 of his artworks, including strips, sketches, and works from his Saatchi Gallery show in 2015, to celebrate a polymath artist who refuses to rest on his laurels, or be pigeonholed in any particular practice. With influences ranging from hip hop to zombie slasher movies, Hewlett emerged in the mid-1990s as co-creator of the zeitgeist-defining Tank Girl comic. With then-roommate Damon Albarn, he went on to create the unique cartoon band Gorillaz, a virtual pop group of animated characters, who have recorded five albums and mounted breathtaking live spectacles. Since then, Hewlett has continued to collaborate with Albarn on projects including an elaborate staging of the Chinese novel Monkey: Journey to the West by Wu Cheng’en, complete with circus acrobats, Shaolin monks, and Chinese singers. In 2006, he was named “Designer of the Year” by the Design Museum in London, and in 2009, Hewlett and Albarn won a BAFTA for their animated Monkey sequence for the Beijing…

XXL Edition of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott Book

XXL Edition of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott Book – Jump into the megawatt world of Mert and Marcus, the creative tour de force who have styled and shot some of the most powerful brands and personalities of our time, from Miu Miu to Angelina Jolie, Givenchy to Gisele Bündchen. This XXL-sized edition features some 300 pictures from the hyper-glamorous, hyper-glossy repertoire of a creative partnership that has defined and redefined standards for fashion.

Piggott asked Alas for a light, the pair got talking, and rapidly discovered they had plenty in common, not least a love of fashion. Three years later, the duo now known as Mert and Marcus had moved into a derelict loft in East London, converted it into a studio, and had their first collaborative photographic work published in Dazed & Confused.

Discover the Amazing Art Edition of Ellen von Unwerth New Book

Discover the Amazing Art Edition of Ellen von Unwerth New Book – Ellen von Unwerth’s puckish humor pervades the pages of Heimat, an enchanted tour around Bavaria. The renowned fashion and music photographer revisits her childhood homeland to shoot a posse of gorgeous girls out for fun and adventure amid the region’s undulating fields; age-old traditions; and deep, mysterious forests. As they happily discard their dirndls and run riot across the countryside, von Unwerth’s heroines demonstrate the attributes and attractions of the region, whether munching on pretzels, striding out across pristine pastures, or seducing lederhosen-clad farmhands (and each other). Blending old-world charm with a rebellious edge and a sly subversion of traditional gender roles, Heimat bursts with fresh, provocative eroticism, tied up with wit, laced with an abiding love for a proud and beautiful region. Ellen von Unwerth worked as a top fashion model for 10 years, before taking up the camera and becoming one of the world’s most in-demand fashion photographers. Her work has featured in countless magazines, including Vogue, Interview, Vanity Fair, and i-D, while her advertising campaigns include Victoria’s Secret, Banana Republic, and Chanel. Von Unwerth’s TASCHEN books include Heimat, Fräulein, and The Story of Olga. Mark Schulz…

The Alice Springs portfolio: Faces, Places and Punk

The Alice Springs portfolio: Faces, Places and Punk – Coinciding with her exhibitions at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie and Helmut Newton Foundation, this June Newton / Alice Springs collection focuses on the glamour and seedy excitement of her 1980s Melrose shots, as well as some of her most compelling self-portraits and studies of Helmut. When her husband – who happened to be world-famous photographer Helmut Newton fell sick with flu on the eve of a pressing deadline in 1970 – it was up to his wife, June, to photograph an advertisement for Gitanes cigarettes. After the barest instruction in lighting and camerawork, June clicked the shutter on a smoking model and ignited her own career behind the lens. Using the pseudonym Alice Springs, June Newton began as a commercial photographer, shooting advertisements for French and international fashion magazines, before exploring portraiture and celebrity via the highlife in Hollywood and lowlife of the L.A. punk scene during the 1980s. She became Helmut’s artistic director, collaborating on exhibitions and books as well as developing her own characteristically intense, revealing photography. Coinciding with a major retrospective at the Helmut Newton Foundation which was shown at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, this…
