by Francois Halard, Pierre Berge (Preface by), Mayer Rus (Introduction), Isabelle Dupuy Chavanat (Text by (Art/Photo Books))
Included in this highly anticipated volume are Halard’s images of the glorious homes of the most important tastemakers, artists, and designers of the twentieth century: Axel Vervoordt, Roger Vivier, Richard Avedon, the Duchess of Devonshire, Julian Schnabel, Schiaparelli, Carlo Mollino, Balthus, Coco Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, and many more, including Halard’s own homes in New York, Paris, and Arles. Photographed in his inimitable "grand manner," often for Vogue, this book also shows for the first time the more intimate "house portraits" that Halard would photograph for himself, where his personal vision shines through. François Halard will be a coveted, indispensable resource for all lovers of interior style and a master class in visual education.
François Halard has been a regular contributor to Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ, and House & Garden for over thirty years. His work for these publications established him as the most prolific and well-known interior and architectural photographer of our time.
