Gallary du Jour: Mark Shaw Fashion Photography


I'm crazy about vintage fashion photography, especially that of Mark Shaw. Best known for his family photos of the Kennedy's, Shaw also shot the European fashion collections for LIFE magazine during the 1950s and 1960s and was one of the first photographers to capture runway and backstage images in color. 

Recently, I was captivated by a large Mark Shaw photo from yesteryear of backstage at a Balenciaga runway show, which was in the Blogger's Closet room of the San Francisco Decorator Showcase. I'm set on getting a couple of these stunning images for my own home office, so now comes the hard part,  deciding which one!

  12. I appreciate the variety of your blog's content so much!! Those photos are so interesting (and pretty)! I think I've seen the Life Magazine photos you mention, but I knew nothing about the photographer, and I am one who could definitely learn more about artists in the fashion world. Good luck finding the perfect pieces of his work for your office! And cheers to the weekend :)
