    The 1960s and '70s were a time when mainstream culture was turned on its head. Everything from fashion and music to politics and religion was questioned or reinvented while technological advances allowed people around the world to witness these incredible changes. Drawn from the Nicola Erni Collection, the spectacular images in this volume represent the iconic people, places, and events of the era, and were created by the most celebrated photographers of their time as well as press photographers. Iconic figures such as Jackie Kennedy, Mick Jagger, Maria Callas and Truman Capote; happening locales such as Warhol's Factory, Studio 54 and London's nightclubs; the jet-setting scenes of Saint-Tropez, St. Moritz, Paris, and Rome-it's all here as viewed through the lenses of Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Francesco Scavullo, Robert Mapplethorpe, Lord Snowdon, Andy Warhol and others. A fascinating introductory essay explores the era's cultural scene and examines the art of celebrity photography. Pulsing with life and creativity, this treasure trove of photographs preserves for posterity an unforgettable time.

    In this photographic scrapbook, fashion photographer Stan Shaffer shares his extraordinary life at the nexus of art, fashion and cinema. On this incredible journey we traipse through the hottest NYC parties where everyone is somebody and they’re all dressed to kill!

    Over his career as icon maker, Shaffer has hung out with everyone from Andy Warhol to Jerry Hall, Carla Bruni to Uma Thurman. With his fine-tuned intuition, this trendsetting photographer reveals the real person beyond these public facades. Sometimes sexy, often quirky, these images are always joyful and original.

    Stan Shaffer died unexpectedly during the final stages of production on this book. Stan was truly original, with an infectious laugh and a true zest for living. This book not only captures his life’s work and that zest but also an era that defined modern New York City, which still permeates today. One of the blessings of this book was that it reconnected Stan with so many people from his lifetime. Sadly, this book turned out to be Stan’s swan song as well.

    Richard Avedon redefined portrait and fashion photography in the 20th century. In the 1940s Avedon burst onto the fashion scene, infusing his photographs with touches of realism and the fantastic. His images were among the first to replace the stiff poses of the past with energetic action scenes that commanded the pages of Harper's Bazaar and Vogue magazines from the mid-'40s through the 1980s. He took his models out of the studios and brought them to cafes and casinos, posing them with well-dressed escorts. His models nuzzled elephants, stood amongst circus performers, and leapt like gymnasts. As his career progressed, Avedon developped a deceptively simple studio portrait style, which he would continue throughout his life. With uncompromising directness, he portrayed his subjects against a white background, with no extraneous details to distract from the essential specificity of face, gaze, dress, and gesture. This challenging innovation, coupled with the artist's intense interest in his subjects and mastery of his craft, resulted in mesmerizing portraits, among them Marilyn Monroe, Anna Magnani, Suzy Parker, Tina Turner, Stephanie Seymour, and many more.

    Our cry should be listened to by the whole worldA" - Mathambo Sesana, (San) Bushman, Botswana From the frozen taiga of Siberia to the rainforest of the Amazon and the bushland of Botswana, We Are One celebrates the extraordinary diversity of tribal peoples - their cultures, values and beliefs - and the fragile, wild beauty of the homelands to which many are still so intimately connected. This book aims to create a sense of solidarity with tribal peoples, promoting the message that they are equal to us: just as modern, just as much part of the 21st century and with just as much right to live in peace. We Are One creates a greater sense of wonder and respect for the world's tribes and their natural environments, and will emphasise the importance of what they have to teach us in terms of the many humanitarian and environmental issues inherent in their - and our - survival. We Are One is an international collaboration between tribal people, philosophers, journalists, academics, anthropologists, environmentalists and photojournalists, all brought together in support of indigenous tribes. Contributions will cover the myriad diverse themes inherent in tribal cultures, touching upon topics such as cultural diversity, tribal languages, the eco-systems of rainforests, tribal botanical knowledge, the art and wisdom of shamans, the instinctive tribal principles of balance and sustainability, the reverence for and guardianship of Mother Earth, the traditional values of reciprocity, community spirit and collective thinking and the richly colourful festivals, ceremonies and ancestral rituals. Written contributions include Noam Chomsky, Claude Levi-Strauss, Bruce Parry, Satish Kumar, Wade Davis, Robin Hanbury-Tenison and Richard Gere, to name but a few. Likewise, a large number of award-winning photographers have agreed to allow their work to be reproduced in this book, including Sebastiao Salgado, Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Steve McCurry. We Are One is both a celebration of the fragile beauty of the world's remaining tribes, and a powerful call to arms. All royalties go to Survival International to help fund their campaigning for the rights of tribal peoples worldwide

    The first volume of Vitamin P, published in 2002, inaugurated a vibrant period for painting. Since its publication, a whole new generation of painters has emerged, some inspired by the artists who appeared in that book, others taking cues from new sources. Vitamin P2 introduces this new wave of painters to the world. The vast medium of painting continues to be a central pillar of artistic practice, and Vitamin P2 presents the outstanding artists who are currently engaging with and pushing the boundaries of the medium. Over 80 international critics, artists and curators have nominated the 115 artists who have made a fresh, unique or innovative contribution to recent painting. All of the artists in Vitamin P2 have recently emerged onto the international scene, and none appeared in the first Vitamin P.

    An introduction by Barry Schwabsky, who also wrote the introduction for Vitamin P, provides a broad overview of recent developments in the medium while also looking towards its future.
