A personal and complete retrospective by one of the most important twentieth-century photographers. Elegantly curated by the legendary photographer and his youngest daughter Frances von Hofmannsthal, Snowdon looks back at an exceptional life and features a selection of 175 full-color and black-and-white stylish fashion photographs and iconic portraits taken throughout his expansive and influential career. Having started photographing at a young age, Snowdon focused primarily on theater, fashion, and society photography before becoming the official Royal photographer and starting a six-decade working relationship with Vogue. In 1960, he married Princess Margaret, the sister of Queen Elizabeth II, and in 1961 he began his illustrious career with The Sunday Times magazine. Known for his expressive and candid portraits, using both subtle humor and quiet sincerity, Snowdon’s work evokes a sense of familiarity met with extreme beauty. His successes have branched equally from the worlds of high fashion and celebrity to the British Royal family, making his audience vast and beloved. The subjects featured include Cecil Beaton, Charlie Chaplin, David Bowie, Marlene Dietrich, Bridget Riley, David Hockney, Serge Gainsbourg, Yves Saint Laurent, and Jack Nicholson, among others. Archive material includes previously unpublished polaroids, private scrapbooks, and letters.
What an fantastic collection of photographs and stories about the images that Lord Snowden captured throughout his career. I really love the notes that Lord Snowden himself writes about the work he did making these fantastic images.
I saw this exhibit in London. Wow! Love the book.
Beautiful
This is one beautiful book. Wonderful presentation, fine stock and great photographs. Snowdon was a true master.
This book is not yet available in the US; I had to order it from AmazonUK, but I'm very glad I did. De Courcy, a great writer, "sort of" received cooperation from Armstrong-Jones in the writing of this "unauthorised" biography.

I had known the bare bones of Armstrong-Jones/Lord Snowdon's life from reading biographies of other members of the Royal Family. De Courcy does a great job at fleshing out his life, work, and personal life, without sensationalising it too much. However, what can you say about a man with three legitimate children and two illegitimate ones to his credit. This is a man who seems never to be without a woman (and a "spare") in his life at all times. I suppose his womanising can be blamed on his rotten relationship with his mother, a social-climbing snob without much in the way of maternal feelings.

The book details his life with Princess Margaret and how his association with her does aid his ascent into the upper ranks of society. But his superb skills at photography were just as important as his relationships in his rise. He's a man of many talents and manifest personal charm.

A well-written bio of a particularly interesting subject.
