by Louis Faurer

Provenance: Lunn Ltd. / Gerd Sander Collection ////// Published in: Louis Faurer. Collection Photo Poche published by Centre National de la Photographie, Milan 1992. Image p.25. Louis Faurer, Exh.-Cat. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 13.01.-14.04.2002 ///// This work was made shortly after Faurer was hired by Junior Bazaar (later named Haper´s Bazaar), where also Robert Frank was working for (the two immediately struck up a friendship that would last for fifty years). Unlike his photographer colleagues, Faruer was fascinated by fashion. During this time Faurer and Frank also were key members of the New York School of street photographers, where Faurer was active from the 1930s to the 1950s. A loosely defined group that included Diane Arbus and William Klein, the New York School chose city life as its subject, preferred 35mm cameras, and rejected traditional documentary styles.
