MemyselfandI: Photographic Portraits of Picasso
Picasso was one of the most frequently photographed celebrities of the last century, as these staged portraits, classic sittings, and snapshots prove. This opulently illustrated volume is the first to examine the tense relationship between Picasso s wish to control the presentation of his public persona and the ambitions and ideas of the famous photographers. Picasso becomes the example for an investigation into what kind of role the portrait of the artist plays in shaping his myth. While some of the photographers were commissioned by Picasso himself, were even friends with him, they considered themselves autonomous artists.
