Lillian Bassman - Refining Fashion

Atlas Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of black and white photographs by Lillian Bassman (1917-2012), renowned for her modernising influence on the post-war fashion industry. Working as a fashion photographer and art editor at Harper’s Bazaar in the 1950s – 1970s, she was famous for her high-contrast images of society women, actresses and models.

Bassman’s work was significant in emphasising the power of elegance, mystery and gesture in fashion. Her prints, developed in high contrast and carefully over-exposed, are abstract, luminous, soft yet captivatingly dramatic.
