Legendary Fashion Photographers - Lillian Bassman

Lillian Bassman-Thumbnail.jpg

A misunderstood artist who happened to use photography.

Bassman began her career as a Fashion Illustrator before being apprenticed by Alexey Brodovitch (Who also taught many other very influential photographers and artists.). She worked at Junior Bazaar, later Harper’s Bazaar.

The most notable qualities of her photographic work are:

  • The high contrast between light and dark.

  • The graininess of the finished photos

  • the geometric placement and camera angles of the subjects.

Bassman’s work began to be re-appreciated in the 1990s

 

 

Stay tuned because every Friday we'll look at the work of a new Photographer and examples of their wonderful work.
