Anyone who has had the word influential used to describe his work as much as Swiss-born fashion photographer Hans Feurer has certainly deserves a retrospective. In September, Damiani will release Hans Feurer, a career-spanning volume that explores Feurer’s innovative use of natural light and environments in making groundbreaking fashion images that showcase the female form. Feurer, who photographed the 1974 Pirelli calendar, frequently shot for magazines such as Vogue and Elle in the ’70s and the ’80s, as well as numerous brands—including Kenzo, for whom he created a now-iconic 1983 campaign featuring Iman swathed in a crimson sheath.
