About this book
In the Polish city of Lodz, the brothers Ashkenazi grew up very differently in talent and in temperament. Max, the firstborn, is fiercely intelligent and conniving, determined to succeed financially by any means necessary. Slower-witted Jacob is strong, handsome, and charming but without great purpose in life. While Max is driven by ambition and greed to be more successful than his brother, Jacob is drawn to easy living and decadence. As waves of industrialism and capitalism flood the city, the brothers and their families are torn apart by the clashing impulses of old piety and new skepticism, traditional ways and burgeoning appetites, and the hatred that grows between faiths, citizens, and classes. Despite all attempts to control their destinies, the brothers are caught up by forces of history, love, and fate, which shape and, ultimately, break them. First published in 1936, The Brothers Ashkenazi quickly became a best seller as a sprawling family saga. Breaking away from the introspective shtetl tales of classic nineteenth-century writers, I. J. Singer brought to Yiddish literature the multilayered plots, large casts of characters, and narrative sweep of the traditional European novel. Walking alongside such masters as Zola, Flaubert, and Tolstoy, I . J. Singer’s premodernist social novel stands as a masterpiece of storytelling.
Bert Stern, der amerikanische Mode- und Werbephotograf der 60er Jahre, war der letzte Photograph, dem Marilyn Monroe - sechs Wochen vor ihrem Tod - einen Phototermin gewährte.
About this book
In everyone's imagination Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) will forever remain a woman of breath-taking sex appeal and unparalleled beauty - a myth that transcends continents and generations. Bert Stern, the famous advertisement and fashion photographer of the 60s, was the last to be granted a sitting by Marilyn Monroe - six weeks before her tragic death. The three-day session, which was arranged by Vogue and took place at the Los Angeles Bel-Air Hotel, yielded nearly 2,600 pictures - fashion, portraits and nude studies - of indescribable sensual and human vibrancy, of which vogue selected no more than twenty for publication. And yet these few photographs ineradicably shaped our image of Marilyn Monroe. The monumental body of work by the master photographer and the Hollywood actress, the most gifted photo model of her day, both quantitatively and qualitatively marks a climax in the history of star photography. A unique affirmation of the erotic dimension of photography and the eroticism of taking photographs, it is still the world's finest and largest tribute to Marilyn Monroe. Out of print for some time, our volume presenting the complete set of 2,571 photos is now available again in an unaltered edition. In his foreword, Bert Stern relates the planning and course of this unusual sitting that was to become a memorable and unrepeatable event for all involved - and especially for posterity.
