Lillian Bassman was a photographer, art director and a painter. She left behind a legacy of fashion photography dipped in black and white with such elegance that only she could capture. Because of the soft edges, dramatic contrasts and the poses she had the models do, her photos almost looked like a painting. She often used geometrics in her photography and woman´s elegance was the key subject in every picture.
I love how geometric her photos are, so I tried to pose in that way. It especially shows in the first photo, which is also my favorite.
