Alexey Brodovitch's Ballet

Recommended Posts

The Errata series, while a very worthworth one, a labor of love, are not reprints of the originals, but photographs of the double page spreads. Some of the direct impact of the photographs in the original editions is reduced by presenting the books as art objects.

There is a good chapter about the making of "Ballet" in the Phaidon monograph "Alexey Brodovitch" by Kerry William Purcell – along with the entire layout and the proof sheets of negatives not used in the book. Brodovitch was the art editor of Harper's Bazaar in the late forties and ran a workshop called the Design Lab. Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Diane Arbus, Lisette Model and Gary Winogrand attended his classes - you can readily see his influence in their work.
