Legendary Fashion Photographers - James Abbe
What made James Abbe particular in his time is that he would photograph outside of a studio.
Let’s remember how cumbersome was photography at the early stages and doing this was kind of daring.
Abbe rose to stardom by photographing theater stars and later Hollywood stars (like Chaplin). Dancers were his favorite subject and Anna Pavlova was his favorite muse.
His portraits are placid, the subject looks well mannered; they represented what Alexander Liberman called… an underlying dream of a world where people act and behave in a civilized manner.
Stay tuned because every Friday we'll look at the work of a new Photographer and examples of their wonderful work.
