Editorial Reviews

Review

"Leigh Bowery was clearly one of the most eye-poppingly extraordinary figures of our time." (Martin Gayford The Daily Telegraph 20050801)

About the Author

Leigh Bowery was a performance artist, fashion designer, nightclub sensation, art object, aspiring pop star, and above all, an icon whose influence traversed the music, art, film, and fashion worlds. Perhaps he is best known as the muse and nude model for some of Lucian Freud's most famous paintings; ironic for the man who was infamous for his costumes. Originally from Australia, he arrived in London in 1980, and proceeded to establish himself both there and in New York for his scene-making clubs and performances until his death in 1994.

Fergus Greer was born in England and now lives in the United States. His work can be seen regualry in Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, GQ, Newsweek, The New York Times Magazine, and other publications around the world. His portraits of Leigh Bowery have been exhibited in group shows at The Hayward Gallery in London and the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg.

A fantastic book of Leigh Bowery's looks!! Fergus Greer's photographs show Bowery in a vivid and sometimes shocking template. A must have for any Bowery fan. My only negative critique is on the description of the hardcover book having 240 pages it's actually 175 pages...the same as the paperback. Oh well...now I have 2 awesome books of the amazing creature Leigh Bowery!!

This book is beautiful. You can really get a sense for Leigh's work and Fergus' as well. If you are looking an overview of Bowery's work this is perfect. I can't say enough about how beautiful the photos are.
