HORST DIEKGERDES. Distanz Verlag, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Die Gestalten Verlag, Berlin, through Prestel Publishing, New York. 232 pp. with 220 col. ills. ISBN 9783954761340 In English.
Due date: Forthcoming. Publisher's description: Not many fashion photographers get to see their pictures become part of the pop-cultural mainstream. The cover the German photographer Horst Diekgerdes created for the Britpop band Pulp's album This Is Hardcore was that rare stroke of genius: under the guidance of the legendary art director Peter Saville, Diekgerdes captured a young woman -- she might well be a porn star -- in a sexually explicit pose. The album became a smash hit. Diekgerdes has been working in the scene since the 1980s, also creating pictures for the world's coolest fashion magazines, led by Another Magazine, as well as numerous fashion brands including Sonia Rykiel and Chloe. His technical proficiency is widely regarded as second to no one's. Arranging the lighting, discussing image definitions and focal lengths, selecting locations, choosing models -- he leaves nothing to chance and is not above perfecting a model's hairstyle and makeup. After many years in Paris, the fashion capital, where he regularly attends fashion shows, Diekgerdes is now based in Zurich but travels the world for work. His pictures have been on view at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, the Fotomuseum Winterthur, and the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg.
