From his studio in the heart of New York, Australian-born Anton Bruehl created inventive and perfectly realized color photographs for advertisements in top American magazines such as "Vogue" and the "New Yorker." Seen by the millions of readers, his ads had a dedicated following eliciting bags of fan mail.

As well as advertising, Bruehl produced evocative images of stars of stage and screen, other celebrities, seasonal child studies, and his personal photography in the classic documentary tradition including his award-winning photo book "Mexico" (1933) and "Tropic Patterns "(1970).

Essays cover:

- the early lives of the Bruehl brothers in Australia

- Anton's success in New York

- his most famous and whimsical advertising campaigns

- fascinating details on Bruehl-Bourges color processes, which gave Breuhl's photographs their distinctive look

- his time in Mexico and his award-winning book.

Drawn from the National Gallery of Australia's extensive Anton Bruehl collection of black & white and color photographs, magazine prints and printers proofs, this book is a must for anyone interested in photography, advertizing and popular culture.
