Abe Frajndlich: «Lillian Bassman»

Lillian Bassman, the iconic American fashion and art photographer, hit the road, bit the dust, has passed away in her Manhattan apartment at the age of 94.

Wikipedia writes: «From the 1940s until the 1960s Bassman worked as a fashion photographer for Junior Bazaar and later at Harper’s Bazaar where she promoted the careers of photographers such as Richard Avedon, Robert Frank, Louis Faurer and Arnold Newman. Under the guidance of the Russian emigrant, Alexey Brodovitch, she began to photograph her model subjects primarily in black and white. Her work was published for the most part in Harper’s Bazaar from 1950 to 1965.»

Abe Frajndlich, however, still takes everyday a quite refreshing bath – for not longer than three hours – grabs his camera and leaves the house. You can visit his website here.
