Muir, former picture editor of British Vogue, brings together a collection of Deakin's most important photographs, including previously unseen material recovered from the artist's friends, the archives of Vogue, and the studio floor of painter Francis Bacon, who based paintings on photos commissioned from Deakin. Muir's accompanying essay provides background to this powerful collection of 111 bandw portraits by Deakin and seven color plates showing Bacon's paintings. Deakin made no concessions to his subjects' vanity and scorned any need for admiration in his pursuit of truthful depiction. Oversize: 9.50x11.75".
