Fernand Fonssagrives


Classic photographers

Fernand Fonssagrives “(1910-2003) was one of the most revered practitioners of ‘beauty photography’ in the early 1940Â’s and was married to the legendary model Lisa Fonssagrives, who then went on to marry Irving Penn. FonssagrivesÂ’ unique eye for combining shape, form and beauty and the extraordinary sculptural beauty that was Lisa Fonssagrives, made for a perfectly balanced partnership that continues to be imitated by photographers to this day.”
