This collection of legendary images from some of the world s most revered photographers celebrates a dynamic era in all its glory and excitement. The 1960s and '70s were a time when mainstream culture was turned on its head. Everything from fashion and music to politics and religion was questioned or reinvented while technological advances allowed people around the world to witness these incredible changes. Drawn from the Nicola Erni Collection, the spectacular images in this volume represent the iconic people, places, and events of the era, and were created by the most celebrated photographers of their time as well as press photographers.

Format: Hardcover
This is a massive book - large and heavy. All photographs are in black and white. It isn't quite fashion photography (in my opinion), but more photography by famous photographers of famous and glamorous people in the 60s and 70s. Chapters are divided by venue/scene - Cote d'Azur, Paris, London, Rome, New York.

It is interesting to see people of the past in their prime. Not all are attractive/flattering photos. Very little text - just the photographs, photographer, subject, date and location, but each chapter has introductory text. All photos are of people, but not just simple portraits. Most photographs are of people in context of their environment; but at least half are posed. All are definitely composed photographs.

Sorry - I'm neither a photographer nor an artist, just interested in the material. I have the book in front of me, and see that there are no other reviews, so I thought to offer something.
