By Ivan Shaw
Supermodel Patti Hansen’s short but incredibly influential career is given serious critical attention for the first time, following her transformation from a teenage model on the cover of Glamour to her reign as a dominating force in the pages of Vogue and on 12 covers.
Cataloging the changing era of 1970s fashion and culture, this luxe book documents how Hansen served as muse to a crop of new, up-and-coming photographers including Arthur Elgort and Patrick Demarchelier while making influential editorial images with already well-established photographers such as Helmut Newton.
With a foreword by Karlie Kloss and contributor essays this exciting volume brings new insight into Hansen’s private life. Filled with gorgeous, exclusive images, Patti Hansen: A Portrait is a comprehensive tribute to a model and decade beloved by fashion fans and industry professionals alike.
Hardcover, 232 pages, 150 color photographs
Dimensions: 9 x 12 1⁄2 x 1 inches
"The beauty of the book, of course is the exquisite collection of images, but the educated reader will realize that this is not just a visual diary or timeline of Patti Hansen but rather an intimate telling of a young woman’s rise to fame that has lasted far longer than most who are tagged unforgettable or 'supermodels.'" — New York Journal of Books
