Since the late 1960s Steve Hiett has been shooting the ever changing world of fashion through his striking photography. Prestel Publishing recently released a book loaded with his riotously colorful photographs evoking the trends and styles of bygone eras, spanning over five decades.
Arranged by decades Beyond Blond is filled with saturated colored images, lighted by stunning flash work and often off the mark. Hiett’s oeuvre tells stories that change with time - whether its 1970s Miami, France in the 1980s, or New York at the end of the 20th century - Hiett creates a one of a kind moment impression that feels neither contrived nor self-conscious.
"I don’t think of myself as ‘a photographer', I think of myself as someone who uses the camera to create images that I see in my head.” - Steve Hiett
On Beyond Blond you will find a brief introduction giving you an insight to the photographer’s description of himself. The reproduced images in this book are a further tribute to Steve Hiett’s enduring import of the world of fashion photography.
