November Girl Sale at V&M

Monday, November 19th, 2012

Following the successful sale on V&M’s unique site in the summer of this year – as well as the event in Manhattan – we have collaborated with them to offer four rare and powerful images in the form of vintage prints from Sam’s book, ‘November Girl’ (1967)

It is hard for me to overstate the power of these prints. No online jpeg can begin to simulate the extraordinary experience offered by handling and viewing these vintage prints. They are masterpieces of the silver printing art and unique photographic objects from what is arguably Sam’s greatest book.

Sam died with almost all his vintages unsigned but these prints come with numbered certificates of authenticity from the estate and in all cases there are no more than three known prints in existence (excluding printer’s proofs and full scale book dummies)

Sam Haskins at Basel Miami Art Fair

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Just a week before Sam's death he worked with me to produce the first and sadly, we now know, last series of limited edition prints of his work for the Milk Gallery stand at Basel Miami. Four images, linked by a theme of American Landscape, in a set of 10 prints each. Today (until Sunday, December 6, 2009) they go on sale at the Milk Gallery stand at the Basel Miami Beach 2009 art fair in Florida.

Here are the four images.

In addition, at the request of Milk, Sam released two signed, previously unpublished Cowboy Kate images in the form of vintages, printed and retouched by Sam in his Johannesburg studio in 1963. These are very rare, most of Sam's vintage archive is unsigned.

A catalogue of the images on offer at Basel Miami, exactly as prepared by Sam can be found in this PDF file. There is also an updated one page bio available here. Please note that the full version of Sam's bio on this blog has not been updated yet.

Book Signing at Milk Gallery

Friday, October 2nd, 2009

I am making a steady recovery from my stroke and will be at Milk Gallery this weekend to sign books. On both Saturday and Sunday October 3rd and 4th from 12:00PM to 5:00PM. Visitors are welcome to bring vintage copies of my books for signing.

Milk Gallery

Here's what the press have been saying:

New York Times: [His latest book] Fashion Etcetera.... is sure to prolong the fashion world’s longstanding crush on him.

Eye Magazine: You don’t have to look to hard to see the remarkable and sustained effect Haskins work has had on the photographic and design community over the past four, nearly five decades.

Wall Street Journal: The fashion tribe has borrowed from the South African-born photographer for decades.

The New Yorker: ...because my words can do them no justice, below is a selection of Haskins’s photographs.

FASHION ETECETERA is being launched with an exhibition at Milk Gallery in New York. Milk Gallery is at 450 W 15th Street New York and runs until October 29th, 2009 (a three day extension over our the previous closing day). The project is a partnership with the Tommy Hilfiger group who have exclusive 3rd party rights to market, distribute and sell a special edition of the book and are sole sponsors of the exhibition.

A PDF of the standard edition French Fold jacket can be viewed here. A PDF of the special edition cover to be sold in Tommy Hilfiger stores can be viewed here

For clarification of the two editions of FASHION ETCETERA please see the 'Two Editions' post on this blog.
