Lillian Bassman & Paul Himmel
by Ingo Taubhorn
Publisher's Description
A revised edition of the award-winning publication accompanying the first major retrospective.

The work of Lillian Bassman (1917–2012) exudes a captivating elegance and a sure sense of style. As long-standing art director for Harper's Bazaar, she shaped the style of fashion photography of the 1940s to 1960s. By experimenting with various photographic exposures and darkroom techniques, she lent her black and white photographs a unique, almost painterly quality.

The urge to experiment also hallmarks the work of her husband Paul Himmel (1914–2009), who worked for Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, and many other magazines during the course of his career.
