Presenting 150 high-quality reproductions of the photographer’s work from the past four years—a distinctive take on the meeting points of fashion, beauty, the unconscious, and the surreal—this handsome 2022 publication from Hatje Cantz serves its subject well; it is the first monograph on the work of daring new talent, photographer Elizaveta Porodina. Porodina uses a plethora of photography and digital techniques to transport them to surreal, oddly familiar realms where they are neither welcomed nor expected. She implies that true beauty forces them to confront their own mortality, which may be unsettling. Luxurious, color-saturated photographs that showcase the photographer’s enhanced perception of light, pigment, tone, and drama are exquisitely reproduced on premium paper. The spectator takes on the role of storyteller.

One of the most influential photographers of the last 60 years, Terry O’Neill, discusses the inspiration for some of his most famous photographs.

These are the tales that Terry O’Neill alone can tell: the morning he spent by the Beverly Hills pool with Faye Dunaway, the Vegas stroll with Sean Connery in his James Bond costume, the serendipitous meeting with Bruce Springsteen on Sunset Strip, and the doll hospital visit he took Jean Shrimpton to.

To get to the Fontainebleau Hotel, where Sinatra was staying, I walked along the Miami Beach boardwalk. He just reached out and grabbed the letter I was holding. “This kid’s with me,” he told his security detail after reading it. What Ava wrote to him in that letter remains a mystery to this day. I became an intimate member of his group the instant it happened. -O’Neill, Terry.

Photographer Terry O’Neill quickly rose to prominence in the ’60s, documenting the likes of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. Because of his innate musical taste and ear for performers, he knew just which bands to highlight. He was trusted by them as well. I was once at a bar while the Rolling Stones and the Beatles were playing. After all was complete, they were simply chilling and planning their next move. They were referring to their status as the “new kids of the moment” when we said this. This kind of fame often fades away after a while. That they would still be going strong after 60 years was beyond their wildest dreams. Music brought O’Neill to Hollywood, where he worked with famous people and had connections that would last a lifetime. Along the way, he met Frank Sinatra. Accompanied Raquel Welch to the shore. Boxed beside Ali. Capture The Who.

O’Neill shot several iconic figures from the forefront of fame, and his images have a unique calm simplicity, candid behind-the-scenes situations, and the unusual bond between subject and photographer that is so uncommon. Terry O’Neill has collaborated with a veritable who’s who of Hollywood, music, sports, and politics during the last 60 years. If you want to experience a walking tour of memory by someone who has seen, met, and photographed everything, then you should read Terry O’Neill: Every Picture Tells a Story.

Written by Kelly Shami and Jennifer Croll, this beautifully illustrated cocktail book has more than fifty recipes that pay homage to some of the most fascinating modern and contemporary artists working today.

Using the eponymous artist as inspiration, this book provides recipes for fifty distinct drinks, taking you on a drunken journey of art history. Relax with a Frida Kahlo cocktail made with tequila and watermelon. While enjoying a Salvador Dalí, ignite some creativity. Alternately, try a rainbow-hued Yayoi Kusama.

Every artist they’ve featured here—from painters to sculptors to photographers and beyond—has their own unique drink mix that reflects their creative process. Readers interested in art as well as cocktails will savour this anthology of interesting anecdotes and creative recipes. Art Boozel is creative and entertaining to the point where it will make you appreciate these artists even more.

Think of the Gustav Klimt recipe as using golden turmeric, the Georgia O’Keeffe recipe as using flower syrup, and the Andy Warhol recipe as using tomato garnishes—each recipe colourfully pulls from aspects of the artist’s life and work in a manner that any cocktail aficionado will love.

Ellen von Unwerth, a renowned German photographer, offers Devotion! Originally displayed at Fotografiska Stockholm, the survey exhibition 30 Years of Photographing Women was subsequently greatly extended for New York. Play, Gender, Drama, Love, Power, Passion, and Lust are the seven expressions that von Unwerth uses in her photographic work, which is both provocative and playful. As is typical of von Unwerth’s work, each picture exudes an exuberant, sensuous, and somewhat comical flair. Artists aren’t interested in objectifying anything; they want to play with high and low archetypes and cliches, evoke strong emotions, and cause chaos.

Unwavering commitment! Play, Gender, Drama, Love, Power, Passion, and Lust are the seven manifestations that Ellen von Unwerth’s provocative and playful photography is examined in 30 Years of Photographing Women.
