Glamorous fashion editor Mary Russell's personal photographs capture the effervescence of the 1960s and 1970s from within the international fashion and art scenes.
As Paris fashion correspondent for Glamour, Vogue, Women's Wear Daily, and the New York Times, and as photo stylist for Helmut Newton, David Bailey, Lord Snowdon, Francesco Scavullo, and Henry Clarke, Mary Russell both captured the mood and became part of the international clique of elite bohemians who ruled the world of art and fashion. Participating in fashion history as it happened, Russell traveled from couture events to glamorous holidays with the people who invented cool modernity, mining the élan of the period and exploding the boundaries between reportage and fashion.
Published here for the first time and accompanied by Russell's personal memoirs, this collection includes intimate portraits of Andy Warhol's visit to Paris with the Factory, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé's circle, Jane Birkin, Peter Beard, Gunter Sachs, and others.

"The veteran fashion editor is a photographer to the core, today using a sleek iPhone instead of the bulky Nikon automatic of yore. “I want to record everything I like. It’s never been about making money or selling pictures,” she says. “It’s sharing an intimate moment for the time I’m there, and capturing the essence of our human connection.” In fact, roughly 80 percent of the images in her new book, “Entre Nous: Bohemian Chic in the 1960s and 1970s,” have never been published — and most never shown to the famous subjects she captured, from Jerry Hall and Charlotte Rampling to Gunter Sachs and Keith Richards." —WOMEN'S WEAR DAILY
