The Artistry of Lillian Bassman

Famed fashion photographer Lillian Bassman died this week at the age of 94.  Best known for her work for Harper's Bazaar magazine in the 40s and 50s, Bassman's artistry had a voice of its own.  The following photos by Bassman all appeared in the April, 1949 issue of Harper's Bazaar.  Spread throughout various editorials in the magazine, the photos all relate to each other in a harmonious fashion.
