Produktbeschreibung
Lord Snowdon is Koto Bolofo's photographic portrait of legendary British photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones, known to the world as Lord Snowdon. The infamous Snowdon has photographed many icons of the twentieth century including David Bowie, Miuccia Prada, and Gilbert and George, and through his 1960 marriage to Princess Margaret, he has become a privileged photographer to the British Royal Family. This book is Bolofo's tribute to Snowdon s life and work, and a document of the man behind the public persona. Snowdon and Bolofo hit it off from their first meeting ( Would you like a drink? asked Snowdon at 11 am), and their rapport is evident in Bolofo s portraits of Snowdon in his London home and studio. Lord Snowdon includes images of old newspaper clippings, as well as Snowdon s archives and notebooks, making the book the most tender and comprehensive study of Snowdon to date. Koto Bolofo was born in South Africa in 1959 and raised in Great Britain. Bolofo has photographed and made short films for magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair and GQ. He has created advertising campaigns for brands including Hermès, Louis Vuitton and Dom Pérignon.

(2010), Grand Complication (2010) and La Maison (2011).
