Published: Thames & Hudson - October 24th, 2011

"Talking to him," writes Gayford, "has changed the way I look at the world and at pictures of it." Hockney's talk is as bright and splashy as his seductive images. Now in his seventies, he's turned North Yorkshire into his personal Givenchy and continues to think about light, perspective, and how to maintain a pure vision in the face of photography's trickery. Having created collages from Polaroids while living on the American West Coast, he's now making paintings on his iPhone and making multi-camera films. This isn't just a portrait of an artist at work in the landscape, but contains fascinating insights into Caravaggio, Van Gogh, Turner, and Constable as well. A true feast for both art lovers and anyone curious about how to see the world. ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley

A stunning visual tribute to a designer who was one of fashion's brightest stars. Appropriately titled, there is a fierce mix of wild abandon and rigid, forced elements in all of McQueen's work. the Met has captured every highlight of a life cut short in this beautifully photographed collection. ~ Reviewed by Meghan Goodwin
