‘Angels’ By Russell James Is 304 Pages Of Nude Artistry & Sensuality

‘Angels’

The stunning art book captures runway veterans such as  Gisele Bündchen, fresh faces like Kendall Jenner, as well as Rihanna, and Victoria’s Secret stars including Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes, Karlie Kloss, Candice Swanepoel, Behati Prinsloo, Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima —all of them posing nude.

I hope people see images that are sensual, empowering to women and that show my love for light, shape and form.

Chris Stein “Negative: Me, Blondie, and the Advent of Punk”

Chris Stein “Negative: Me, Blondie, and the Advent of Punk”
Written by Chris Stein, Afterword by Shepard Fairey, Contribution by Deborah Harry and Glenn O’Brien

ChrisSteinBook1On the occasion of Blondie’s fortieth anniversary, Chris Stein shares his iconic and mostly unpublished photographs of Debbie Harry and the cool creatures of the ’70s and ’80s New York rock scene.

ChrisSteinBook2While a student at the School of Visual Arts, Chris Stein photographed the downtown New York scene of the early ’70s, where he met Deborah Harry and cofounded Blondie. Their blend of punk, dance, and hip-hop spawned a totally new sound, and Stein’s photographs helped establish Harry as an international fashion and music icon. In photos and stories direct from Stein, brilliant writer of hits like “Rapture” and “Heart of Glass,” this book provides a fascinating snapshot of the period before and during Blondie’s huge rise, by someone who was part of and who helped to shape the early punk music scene—at CBGB, Andy Warhol’s Factory, and early Bowery. Stars such as David Bowie, the Ramones, Joan Jett, and Iggy Pop were part of Stein’s world, as were fascinating downtown characters like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Richard Hell, Stephen Sprouse, Anya Phillips, Divine, and many others.

ChrisSteinBook3As captured by one of its greatest artists and instigators, and designed by Shepard Fairey, this book is a must-have celebration of the new-wave and punk scene, whose influence on music and fashion is just as relevant today as it was four decades ago.

“Loup blanc, ours brun, renard roux, lièvres artiques, chouette des neiges, boeufs musqués… Nous vous proposons un superbe voyage vers le Grand Nord, là où les animaux sauvages vivent loin des hommes. C’est dans ces espaces blancs, froids et fascinants, où seul le vent brise le silence de l’hiver, que Vincent Munier a réalisé ses images les plus marquantes. Nous avons rendu visite au plus célèbre des photographes animaliers français pour lui offrir cette “carte blanche” de 30 pages. Récit d’une belle rencontre.
