Book Signing with Victor Skrebneski
Join us in the Drawing Room Library for a reception and book signing celebrating “Skrebneski Documented: 1948-2018,” the latest book of Chicago-based renowned photographer, Victor Skrebneski.
Skrebneski will be in attendance to sign his volume, available for purchase at the event.
Skrebneski Documented: 1948-2018 is an intimate selection of images, chosen by the photographer, to represent his work over seven decades. This evocative collection of raw, provocative portraits, nudes, and snapshots of quotidian life ranges from his best-known images including his series of “black turtleneck sweater portraits”—dramatic black and white portraits of iconic stars, his dynamic, blurry motion studies, his provoking nude photographs of flawless, sculpted bodies, to his Dadaist collages comprised of body parts.
This volume captures the experimentalism, boundary-pushing, and unceasing wit and creativity of Skrebneski’s images and features a who’s who of famous faces.For photography, art, and fashion lovers alike, this is a true collector’s item that celebrates the exhilarating work of one of the 20th century’s greatest image makers.
