Iconic American fashion photographer of the 1940s and 1950s.
Born in 1910 to a sculptor father and a musician mother, Fernand Fonssagrives, along with Irving Penn and Richard Avedon were the holy trinity of photographers in New York during the post-war years. Fonssagrives was at one stage the highest paid of the lot, and the star student at Alexey Brodovitch's Design Laboratory. His work could be seen on the pages of Vogue, Harpers, Town & Country. The names Avedon and Penn conjure forth reams of iconic images and command hundreds of thousands of dollars and yet [this is the first Los Angeles] retrospective of Fonssagrives' work.
