Skrebneski Documented: 1948-2018

This exquisite volume showcases a collection of raw, provocative portraits, nudes, and snapshots of quotidian life shot over the past seventy years by one of photography's greatest image makers--Victor Skrebneski.

Skrebneski Documented is an intimate compendium of photographs shot over the past seven decades by the illustrious Chicago-based photographer Victor Skrebneski. Edited by the photographer himself, this evocative collection features his best-known images, including his series of "black-turtleneck-sweater portraits"--dramatic black-and-white portraits of iconic stars including Liza Minnelli, Bette Davis, and Orson Welles; dynamic, blurry motion studies; provocative nude photographs of flawless, sculpted bodies; and Dadaist collages comprised of body parts. Capturing the experimental, boundary-pushing spirit and unceasing wit of Skrebneski's images, this volume documents a who's who of famous faces, including portraits of Andy Warhol, Audrey Hepburn, Vanessa Redgrave, David Bowie, Iman, John Malkovich, Dennis Hopper, Fred Astaire, and Diana Ross. For photography, art, and fashion lovers alike, this is a true collector's item that celebrates the exhilarating work by one of America's greatest photographic artists.

"SOME PHOTO BOOKS BRING TO MIND HEMINGWAY’S RECOLLECTIONS OF Paris in the 1920s: they are “a moveable feast.” The work of American famed photographer Victor Skrebneski, who was born in 1929, easily captures those ideas of the sacred and the profane. Across the 325 images collected here is something for anyone who appreciates art." —METROSOURCE NY   

"To assess Skrebneski Documented: 1948–2018 on only one plane is impossible, so the prospective reader must be a devoted fashionphile or an aficionado of the art of photography. Skrebneski cannot be pigeonholed or strictly classified other than as a brilliant lensman. This is a perfect gift for those who consider themselves among the cognoscenti of several genres including fashion and photography. It is a treasure to add to one’s library and is most definitely a book that will be revisited by many for ages to come." —NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS
