Acclaimed photographer Deborah Turbeville is one of the rare talents who has managed to bridge the world of fine art and commercial fashion photography seamlessly — her images are instantly identifiable, often moody and quietly poetic shots that evoke a certain amount of melancholy and, intriguingly, warmth, at the same time. Rizzoli is releasing the first comprehensive collection of her work, titled, Deborah Turbeville: The Fashion Pictures on October 11 (available at rizzoliusa.com). It includes shots from her then-controversial Bathhouse series, published in American Vogue in 1975, along with works for Chanel and Emanuel Ungaro. With a foreword written by Franca Sozzani (who recently commissioned Turbeville for a Valentino couture spread in Italian Vogue’s September 2011 issue), the editor describes Turbeville’s work as “unconventional. Sophisticated and simple.” See eight images from the book in the slideshow ahead.
