Lillian Bassman Exhibit

celebrity style

Photography legend Lillian Bassman, who passed away this past February at the age of 94 once said, “the same techniques in Photoshop as I did in the darkroom,” dismisses both romantic notions of film’s purity and digital fantasies of amazingly-manipulated images. One look at her black and white photography and you’re absolutely hooked. The former Harper’s Bazaar art director explained the shift in her career as a simple tool upgrade, “the palette has changed, the end result is the same.”

Bassman’s work will be on exhibit throughout May 26th at the Staley-Wise Gallery. The exhibit–featuring experimental reprints of her early work from the 1940s–is based on the late photographer’s book, Lillian Bassman: Lingerie.
