Lillian Bassman

"Lillian Bassman's experimental and romantic visions revolutionized fashion photography. In fact, Vanity Fair magazine singled her out as one of photography's "grand masters." Full of mystery, sensuality, and expressionistic glamour, Bassman's dramatic black and white photographs capture secret moments and dream memories. Her work is elegant, graceful and totally original. Bassman's unique images achieve their effect through darkroom manipulation, specifically by blurring and bleaching areas of the photographs."
