Out of Africa

by C California Style

On the year of his 75th birthday, the much awaited collector’s-edition reissue of Taschen’s tribute to Peter Beard hits shelves.

David Fahey, of L.A.’s Fahey/Klein gallery, co-edited a tome that has hardly enough pages to capture the legacy of the photographer, collector, diarist and writer. Perhaps best known for his fashion images, he was once married to California supermodel Cheryl Tiegs, and photographed models near his home in Kenya (Veruschka) and while there, discovered new talent (Iman). Feeling really inspired? Some of the images in the book are available at Fahey/Klein. faheykleingallery.com.
