About John Rawlings: 30 Years in VogueA tribute to one of the nation's great fashion photographers rifles through the pages of Vogue and Glamour for proof of Rawlings genius behind the lens.
More about the book from Library JournalThis stunning collection of the work of Vogue photographer John Rawlings (1912 - 70) offers an unintended historical message: the Thirties could look modern, the Forties were not all black and white. Also, the Fifties were rich with sophisticated design, and the Sixties included careful, colorful composition, not just hippie chaos. Rawlings left a large body of work, for example, including 200 Vogue covers, of which Yohannan is the curator. Rawlings was a fashion photographer determined to show more than clothes, which for him were simply one of several elements in an environment where the model dwelt for a camera instant. What resulted from his approach were fully developed works of art that beg for analysis; each image has the quality of a starting point for a tale. In selecting photographs that defy time, Yohannan has built a volume that is both a tribute to an artist and an insight into how genius can endure in a world that is often thought of as "commercial."
