The Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration book chronicles the comprehensive series of creative partnerships since the beginning. In 2002, Tomas Maier, Bottega Veneta’s Creative Director, launched the Art of Collaboration—a project that invites a world-renowned photographer or contemporary artist to collaborate on the Italian brand’s campaign each season. For the launch the world renowned brand created a visual campaign.
The book features more than a thousand photographs, divided by each seasonal campaign from 2002 to 2016 shot by some of today’s brightest visionaries working in photography. The Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration illustrates how they have each interpreted the house’s modernist aesthetic and material elegance, resulting in a book that will be an essential volume for photography aficionados.
Bottega Veneta: Art of Collaboration documents the collaborations between Tomas Maier and all the artists who have contributed to the creation of Bottega Veneta’s advertising portfolio including Lord Snowdon, Juergen Teller, Annie Leibovitz, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, Robert Longo, Nan Goldin, Nick Knight, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, and others.
“The campaign shot by Robert Longo for the book is strong, graphic and eye-catching. The images are a perfect encapsulation of what we want to achieve with the ‘Art of Collaboration’ series” says Creative Director Tomas Maier
The book is available through Rizzoli bookstore online.
