Anh Duong (Self) Portraits

Anh Duong is an internationally known model recognized for her regal, exotic looks. Born in France, she moved to New York in 1989 to pursue painting and acting. Duong quickly became extraordinarily successful as a model, featured in high-profile campaigns for designers such as Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, and John Galliano. After working as a model for more than a decade, painting is once again in the forefront of Duong's life. She has exhibited in galleries around the world -- a recent show in Paris created a sensation, selling out within weeks. In the spirit of Egon Schiele, her paintings are daring, erotic, and intimate. This book juxtaposes slick fashion shots with Duong's own perception of herself. Her revealing and deeply personal paintings contrast the cool, stunning photographs taken by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh, and Michel Comte, to name a few. With elegant images and quotes from Diane Von Furstenberg, Bernardo Bertolucci, Bob Colacello, and others, (Self)Portraits is a hypnotic exploration of art and fashion.
