This is Arthur Elgort's first comprehensive book, showing his world-renowned fashion imagery alongside his personal work. The Big Picture spans Elgort's five-decade career and illustrates his longevity as an emulated fashion photographer. His lively and casual shooting style is intriguingly influenced by a lifelong love of music and dance, particularly jazz and ballet. Elgort's 1971 debut in British Vogue created a sensation in the fashion world where his soon-to-be iconic "snapshot" style and emphasis on movement and natural light transcended norms of fashion photography. Elgort subsequently rose to fame working for distinguished magazines such as American, French and Italian Vogue, Interview, GQ, Life and Rolling Stone, and shooting advertising campaigns for fashion labels including Chanel, Valentino and Yves Saint Laurent.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Arthur Elgort is a man who loves the unexpected. Over the past five decades, his photographic work has been characterized by its ability to convey the feeling that his subjects have been caught unaware, as if they are just going about their business in a nonchalant way, and yet still maintain a sense of glamour-a snapshot, if you will, into the lives of supermodels, celebrities and even Elgort's own family.

A lifelong proponent of shooting with natural light and giving a sense of movement to his shots, Elgort was the first photographer to take models out of the studio and onto the streets, arguably making him the grandfather of the current street-style and concrete catwalk approach to photography. He is even credited with creating the now-famous "Vogue Jump" shot, a self-explanatory style of image known to any fashionista worth her salt.

To celebrate his monumental photographic achievements, Steidl is publishing an impressive coffee-table book, "Arthur Elgort: The Big Picture." Inside, 280 Elgort images, both iconic and personal, come together to highlight the artist's unique and engaging point of view.--Jessica Michault "Bal Harbour Magazine "
