Stolen Moments: The Photographs of Ronny Jaques
A contemporary of Richard Avedon and Lillian Bassman, Ronny Jaques (1910–2008) covered fashion, travel, performing arts, and lifestyle scenes for American magazines, in particular Harper's Bazaar and Town & Country, that remain revered in their respective fields. He quickly established himself as an innovator and now occupies a firm place in the pantheon of post-World War II photographers.
In Stolen Moments, his work is chronicled for the first time in book form by prominent publishing figure and close friend Pamela Fiori, former editor-in-chief of Town & Country.
