I'm really in the mood for watching some photography,
so I might buy a book with photographs, but I know
only a few famous photographers from the past, so this is where
I need your help:
Here is what I'm looking for:
artsy fashion (though not commercial) photography in color (or mixed with
black and white) from 70's, late 60's or 80's.
What I'm looking for is that typical retro look with hard lighting, stiff
models, sort of that manequin doll look.
Something in the esthetics of "Blowup" (the movie)
Something like Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton, only not them
Here are a couple of contemporary shots emulating that hard-light fashion look of the yesterday:
hope you see a pattern: hard and simple light, Kodachrome-like retro esthetics of the image, wierd artsy poses, models like menequin dolls etc.
I have a feeling I might find plenty of all that in 70's and surrounding years, I just don't know where to start
Which famous photographers am I looking for?
