5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning skill and fetishized content, September 19, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Paul Outerbridge: Command Performance (Hardcover)
It would be easy with Outerbridge to be mislead by the sharpness of his palette or the oddity of his subjects. One might scale him as a simple eccentric: this would be totally reductionist. His mastery of complex color techniques, his understanding of camera consequences, his control of lighting, and his joy of composition mark him as a technical master on par with the best in more tame genres. That he adds to this an eroticism and sensuality that is non-standard would in itself place him in a special category. That all this is packaged with a sly commentary on bourgeoise values makes him a keeper for anyone seriously interested in photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars i guess this man was underated and ovelooked, November 30, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Paul Outerbridge: Command Performance (Hardcover)
kinda hard tell things in the language of the empire:to cut it short, as i see those pics i gather this is a very big case of overlooking an artist; this kandisnky like pics are somtehing i've never seen before, and the pic in the main cover is mind blowing;
i have the feeling, that as long you are not too fashionable from the market point of view, you do not even exist, and i think this is here the point with Outerbrige.
anyway, he was not to dedicated to the fashion stuff.
the book is great in my opinion.
