Anh Duong is an internationally known model immediately recognized for her regal, exotic looks. French born, she moved to New York in 1989 to pursue painting and acting but quickly became extraordinarily successful as a model, featured in high-profile campaigns for designers such as Donna Karan, Calvin Klein and John Galliano. After working as a model for more than a decade, painting is once again in the forefront of Duong's life. She has exhibited in galleries around the world; a recent showing in Paris created a sensation, selling out within weeks. In the spirit of Egon Schiele, her paintings are daring, erotic and intimate. This book juxtaposes slick fashion shots with Duong's own perception of herself. Her revealing and deeply personal paintings contrast the cool, stunning photographs taken by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindberg and Michel Comte among other. With elegant images, as well as fun quotes from Diane Von Furstenberg, Isabella Rossellini and Bob Colacello among others, (Self) Portraits is a hypnotic exploration of art and fashion.
