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 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 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.

What can I say? If you love black and white and enjoy fashion photography, here is the Master.
This is the best. I had never seen Ms. Bassman's work before and found it while cruising the 'net for
fashion photos. I had to find a book right away and looked in Amazon and found this.
A gorgeous large book filled with the most outrageously marvelous, beautiful fashion photographs.
All I can do is rave. She is my new Goddess. I'm a huge fan of Deborah Turbeville's fashion work too and
if you like her, get it here too. It's called Deborah Turbeville, the Fashion Pictures.
But Ms. Bassman is beyond words. Just get the book .

The prints are wonderful (which if you are considering this, you already know). The book is a large hard cover (about 11x14 eye balling it). There is a short introduction, then the book is one beautiful photograph after another. (Usually 1 photo per 2 page spread). Most images take up a page to a page and a half with the title and date opposite page. The book has approximately 230 pages.

Lillian Bassman is a true master of photography. Her amazing high contrast fashion and beauty work never cease to amaze me. She is most know for her black and whites, which this book is full of. This book covers a selection of her work from the 1940s to the 1990s.

The info in the about section is now incorrect. As of February 13, 2012, Lillian Bassman passed away, although its said she kept shooting until the end of her beautiful long life.
