Gerard Hastings


Add to Basket


Available. The only book to explore Vaughan’s photographic work. Drawing on recently discovered archives, private collections, rare negatives and unseen documentation, Vaughan’s photographs are presented of lovers, models, landscapes, portraits, still-lives, ballets, domestic scenes and the artist’s travels in North Africa and Greece. Photography was a central activity in his professional life and his images witness enormous social changes and shifts in attitudes. The camera supported Vaughan’s work as a painter, assisting him in observing the world and in exploring both geographical landscapes, and the terrain of the male form.

Fully illustrated throughout with 180 colour & black and white images
