Portrait of an Artist: Conversations with Trailblazing Creative Women
DescriptionFrom legendary visual artists Yoko Ono and Tracey Emin, to groundbreaking musicians like Annie Lennox and Debbie Harry, to fashion giants such as Miuccia Prada and Diane von Furstenberg, this collection of original interviews and Polaroid photographs of almost 30 trailblazing women spans creative industries, nationalities and generations to bring together a never-before- published collection of leading voices. Featuring an astounding range of names including FKA Twigs, Isabelle Huppert and Rei Kawakubo, this book creates both a portrait of each individual woman and - collectively - a powerful portrait of the impact of women on the creative industries. Each creative is interviewed and photographed by the Mexican artist Hugo Huerta Marin. Cate Blanchett reflects on the differences between acting on stage and in film; Marina Abramovic discusses her most radical piece of performance art; Carrie Mae Weems discusses the relationship between race and photography -these and other conversations are further brought to life by Huerta Marin's candid, intimate Polaroid images. Inspiring and revealing, this collection of interviews and photographs gives readers an unparalleled connection with some of the most fascinating women working in the arts today.
