Paul Outerbridge Jr. Photographs

Schirmer/Mosel Munich 1996. Text by Jeannine Fiedler in English and German. 96pp, 47 plates in colour and duotone. Folio size paperback on heavy stock. Fine Condition.

This is a selection of Outerbridge's lesser known color photographs which were done in the 1930s many of which were made by utilizing the "carbro-color" process. In addition to the color work there is a selection of black-and-white photographs as well which include still lifes and nudes. "Using sophisticated techniques, and inspired by his iconoclastic fantasy, he produced a series of erotic female portraits whose fetishistic quality is unmistakable. The disturbing realism of these color images caused museum directors, critics, and publishers of the period to distance themselves from him." from the publisher.
