Fashion Fifties- Georges Dambier




A wonderful  display of  Photographs of early 50's fashion by Georges Dambier is on display at Bonni Benrubi Gallery NYC. (Who's That Girl?) His photos  have influcenced  fashion designers and capture the essence of the classic 50's woman!




When French photographer Georges Dambier shot for Elle magazine in the ’50s, he brought a new sensibility to the world of fashion photography, which had tended toward photographs of models in antiseptic studio settings. Dambier’s portraits are full of life and emotion, showing women in real-world settings and situations. The photographer’s subjects have included such icons as Brigitte Bardot, Suzy Parker and Catherine Deneuve. The exhibition is now Through May 14
