Lillian Bassman with love

Now on February 13, we lost Lillian Bassman at age 94. Lillian Bassman who became one of the greatest woman photographers in the world of fashion. From around the 1940s until the 1960s Bassman worked mostly for Harpers Bazaar.

The most notable qualities about her photographic work are the high contrasts between light and dark, the graininess of the finished photos, the geometric placement and camera angles of the subjects.
