More than 200 works by Croatian-born, France-based photographer Frank Horvat (born 1928) known for his midcentury work in photography, are presented in this comprehensive monograph, alongside images of his personal collection and a selection of works by photography masters with whom Horvat maintained close relationships and exchanges. These include Don McCullin, Robert Doisneau, Sarah Moon, Helmut Newton and Marc Riboud. Excelling in numerous genres, Horvat is famed for his disregard of genre conventions, as this volume amply demonstrates. At the beginning of the 1990s, he was one of the first major photographers to experiment with Photoshop. In 1998, he replaced his professional equipment with a compact camera. As early as the 1950s he was cheerfully demystifying fashion photography, going out onto the street, brazenly positioning a model in the middle of a vegetable market or experimenting with bold cropping or humorous film quotation.
