Night and Day is one of cult photographer Walter Pfeiffer's most brilliant monographs. This publication is a great example of Pfeiffer's distinctive approach to photography and sensuality, developing a melancholic, seductive atmosphere, even as he avoids any trace of the voyeuristic or crude. He is able to locate everyday moments that express a youthful joy, giving ordinary objects and subjects a new chance at glamour, dignity or beauty. Pfeiffer's portraits of friends, lovers, still life and scenery, always taken with a large dose of fun, have inspired a generation of photographers including Ryan McGinley, Terry Richardson, Wolfgang Tillmans and Juergen Teller. Although this book was published in a softcover version, this copy is the rare hardcover version which was not available for trade.
