Glen Luchford is a British photographer best known in the art community for his collaborations with painter Jenny Saville, actually taking part in her exhibitions by photographing the artists as pressed against glass - an that is a lot of artist and a lot of glass! The photographs displayed in this monograph dwell on the seedy or gritty images of pop icons. There are some impressive black and white photographs of musicians Ian Brown and Chris Robinson as well as the now famous series of street shots of Kate Moss that intensely study the grim and deterioration of New York City.
Luchford for a time in the 1990s separated his fashion photography for his 'artistic' photography, but finding success in both fields he melds the two now and the results have made him a much sought after artists for companies such as Prada, Yves Saint Laurent and Calvin Klein - emphasizing oddities as well as beauty. In his more artistically oriented images he elects to focus on the female nude, often with affinity to the buxom exhibitionists, and manages to say much about a corner of life few others have entered. Whether he works with 'head shots' or fully body shots or creates film noir atmospheres he is equally successful.
For the art lover there is included in this book an interview with his long time friend and collaborator Jenny Saville, and that interview alone is worth finding a copy of this particular volume of the artist's work. Grady Harp, September 11
