Deborah Turbeville was a famed American fashion photographer. She is widely credited with adding a darker, more brooding element to fashion photography, beginning in the early 1970s. Turbeville is one of just three photographers, together with Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton, who essentially changed fashion photo shoots from traditional, well-lit images into something much more edgy. She was the only woman and only American among this trio. Her photographs appeared in numerous leading fashion magazines (including Nova and Vogue) and fashion advertisements, including ads for Bloomingdale’sBruno MagliNikeRalph Lauren and Macy’s.

* Condition: Very Good (still protected in original plastic wrap jacket, very minor wear to edging)  – All care is taken to provide accurate condition details of used books, photos available on request.
