“I have been searching for time past all my life.” —Jeanloup Sieff\n\nIn this unique monograph, Jeanloup Sieff (1933-2000) retraces in words and images the course of 40 years of photographs, encounters, and memories. Divided into four chapters, from the 50s to the 90s, the book brings together the major photographs of a creator who left his imprint on a generation with prolific work in the fields of fashion, landscape, advertising, and portrait photography. Sieff’s art testifies to his tireless quest to capture the fleeting beauty of “temps perdu,” or “time which cannot recur.”\n\nAbout the photographer:\nJeanloup Sieff (1933–2000) was one of the most highly regarded art, fashion, portraiture photographers of his generation, who worked mainly in black and white. After photgraphic studies in his native Paris he travelled the world working for Magnum, before settling in New York during the 1960s, working for Esquire, Glamour, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. He was awarded the Chevalier des Arts et Lettres in 1981, and his work was exhibited in museums and galleries around the world.
