Chasing Beauty - Phibbs, Richard

Author(s): Richard Phibbs

Mens Photography

 "The celebrated photographer Richard Phibbs, known for his celebrity portraits and iconic ad campaigns for Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, and more, has an unwavering eye for beauty. Many theorists argue that beauty is subjective, a product of individual preference, but the images from Phibbs' archive of work from 1997-2009, edited, sequenced, and collected in Chasing Beauty, may put that argument to rest. The book is a deeply personal labor of love, affirming Phibbs' belief that photographs can change, inspire, and motivate. Alfredo Paredes, one of the creative minds behind Polo Ralph Lauren, approached Phibbs with the idea of making a monograph with one caveat- Phibbs was to step back and relinquish control. Paredes had a vision in mind of taking Phibbs' aesthetic and selecting images that would realize his unique eye for beauty. The result is a fascinating juxtaposition of visuals that excite, tantalize, shock, and surprise. A delicate and gorgeous rose is juxtaposed with the rawness of a dirty rugby player; a pair of horses is set beside a female nude. These combinations highlight undeniable beauty of both natural and human origin.
