American Night

Genre: Nonfiction, Coffee Table; Author: Axel Crieger

Following the path cut by Bruce Weber, Axel Crieger has produced in American Night a photographic grammar of glamour whose elements are darkness at noon (scenes shot in daylight are made to look like night), gloss (lots of oil-slicked skin and shiny fabrics), and moodiness (no one smiles). Among Crieger’s models is sometime Madonna consort Tony Ward, whose beauty seems to be a terrible source of torment. B
