Lillian Bassman, Harper’s Bazaar, Dovima, 1954
Lillian Bassman was born in Brooklyn, New York. She worked as a textile designer and fashion illustrator before working at Harper’s Bazaar in 1946. In 1949, she photographed her first Paris couture collection, which lead to Lillian Bassman’s distinguished career photographing the foremost models of her day. Renowned for her innovative work in the darkroom, Lillian Bassman experimented by printing through unique materials, burning certain areas, or bleaching sections of the photograph to create images that appeared to be a cross between a watercolor and a photograph.

Sally Mann, Sheet Changing Day, 1994
Photographer Sally Mann has become synonymous with the American South, beloved for capturing its landscapes and people alike with her camera. Born and still residing in Lexington, Virginia, Sally Mann’s photography – especially intimate portraits of her family – has attracted controversy but always pushes the art world’s envelope, informing other young photographers’ eyes. Sally Mann explored many aspects of the photographic medium throughout the 1970s, however her work exploring everyday elements of childhood remains some of her most famous and moving photography work.
