“The clothes have a structured beauty; the gloves are mandatory; the necks are long. Elegant men with cigarettes between their fingers occasionally enter the frame, encountering women who appear utterly indifferent to their attention.”
Lillian is an amazing woman and photographer. Someone from the old school. Thank you for bringing her back into my life with your post. You have a wonderful blog.DJ
!!! quite amazing!
One last time...I wonder about that - creating and then the finality of knowing that you no longer can. I hope it stays in your soul...
thanks for pointing her to me!neki desu
Absolutely amazing. And I am so honored that she has decided to share with us all. Thank you
Having just seen the Avedon exhibit at the San Francisco MOMA and knowing they were friends makes me wish i could see her show! I love the images that are often about what's not there as much as they are about what is. Thanks for this form of storytelling.
i love lillian bassman, i have her ferris wheel image among others pinned to the walls of my bedroom. some are so ethereal. great post.
I'm a big fan of Lillian bassman myself, thanks for sharing, have to say your blog is very inspirational :)
thank goodness for trashbags.
breathtaking. if only each artist were given a trash bag that they could never throw away... it may change the world.
