Jeanloup Sieff (1933–2000) is considered one of the great French fashion and portrait photographers of the second half of the twentieth century. It is remarkable that, despite the number of books on his work, nothing has been published to date on his fashion photography. With this in mind, we set off to explore the archive of the Sieff Bequest. This monograph, with a selection of more than 140 works, provides a comprehensive and in-depth insight into Jeanloup Sieff’s career as a fashion photographer. The unique selection of photographs includes works from the early Sixties to the late Nineties and captures the photographer’s incomparable style in which elegance and humour, romance and melancholy, converge.
