If you love fashion photography or beautiful images in general, do not hesitate to buy this book. Incredible images in a beautifully put together book. There is something so otherworldly about Bassman's photos - it's as though your looking at a dream sequence. I found it easy to get lost in her work.
All images are in black in white - and take up the entire page. Truly stunning. I'm thinking about buying a second copy so I can frame some of the images.

I first saw Lillian's photo in B&W Photo magazine about 5 years ago, and memorized name. It heavily influenced my portraiture work and processing for about year, then i drifted away to find my own style, but as someone who coming from exactly same background as she is - art school and then photography - I never ever ever would cease to gasp in awe at her portraits and appreciate beauty of them. Its just fantastic. If you ever shooting portraiture and studying real masters - this is a MUST.

I was lucky enough to see her show in L.A. recently and she is fantastic. This is a gorgeous book with very special photographs. She is being touted as the next Horst or Avedon, and I can believe it.

I heard about Lillian Bassman from the On Taking Pictures podcast and after seeing some images on line I had to buy the book. Both I and my daughters find this photography totally unique and it's one of the few photo books I own. The 'post processing' is a critical part of her style - she originally did it the manual way with manipulations of negatives and prints and late, late in her career, with Photoshop. If you have any interest in people photography, even if you are not a fashion photographer, I highly recommend this book.
