Summary "Robert Farber is internationally celebrated for his sensitive, sensual, often abstract nudes. The warmth and empathy displayed in his treatment of his human subjects, coupled with his astonishing eye for composition, have made his name synonymous with the very best of fine-art photography. But his preoccupation with natural forms extends beyond the human body: landscapes and flower studies have been among his most popular pieces, and also feature among the works published here." "The technical proficiency fostered by Farber's background in commercial and fashion photography bestows an inimitably soft, grainy patina upon his increasingly simple, elegant, spare images. Light, color, tone, and composition are all carefully orchestrated to render a sense of stillness, silence, and peace. Technical hints on how to achieve the "Farber effect" are included here, along with Farber's enthusiastic response to new advances in the field of digital photography." "Whether presented as portraits or as abstract compositions, what these exquisite pieces have in common is their ability to provoke in the viewer a sense of quietude and contemplation. Painterly, textured, these masterly photographs prove that Farber's reputation as the doyen of mood is utterly deserved."--BOOK JACKET
