Mark Shaw in Paris, 1960September 30, 2009
I can’t decide what I love most about these 1960′s Mark Shaw photographs—the fantastic attire on the models or the dashing Parisian interiors? I have a book of Shaw’s photography of the Kennedy family (he is most famous for his chronicling of America’s Camelot) and have long been a fan of his rich, striking fashion photographs. I adore his use of lighting—be it natural shining in from a window or low and sultry from a table lamp it always gives Shaw’s photographs a distinct mood. My favorite? The purple coat beside the leopard sofa. Yours?
