About the Author

This impressive book allows us to see the full range of Blumenfeld’s innovations, reuniting all the media used by the artist throughout his long career: drawing, photography, photomontage, and collage. His experimental work, including a series of conceptual self-portraits, appears alongside celebrity portraits and his better-known fashion photographs.
For many artists who work across mediums and in both the commercial and artistic worlds, one strand of their work is primary and everything else is ancillary. For Blumenfeld, a political photomontage of Hitler stands next to a fashion photograph unabashedly, as his distinctive genius was expressed equally (if differently) in each.
These days, as ever, artists find themselves forced to work in different spheres to support their artistic vision. Blumenfeld viewed that not as an irksome obligation or necessary evil, but rather as a daily opportunity for creative expression and experimentation. He couldn't help himself; he was an artist every moment of his life.
