Biography

Lillian Bassman (U.S.A. 1917) is a beloved figure in the pantheon of fashion photographers. Her signature style, once described by Richard Avedon as making “visible that heart-breaking invisible place between the appearance and the disappearance of things,” offers a sensuous and intimate vision of modern women. Her career spans almost the entire ‘golden age’ of photography, starting her career for Harper’s Bazaar in 1941 and still actively working as an exhibiting photographer today.
