Lillian Bassman

The Spotted Furs


She began photographing under guidance herself between 1950 and 1965; her photographs were mainly black-and-white and published in Harper’s Bazaar. The elegance and sense of style of her work is impressive, it captured the image of women in the 1940s. With new experimental photographic techniques she gave her images a special glaze that made the black-and-white photographs look almost painterly.

“Everything she does has a positively magic power. She is the only one in the history of photography who managed to visualize that breathtaking moment between the apparition and disappearance of things”; her friend and famous photographer Richard Avedon said. Besides Robert Frank, Louis Faurer and Arnold Newman, Avedon was one of the numerous photographers whose careers she promoted.
