"Lillian Bassman, Fashion and Fine-Art Photographer, Dies at 94"

Lillian Bassman, a magazine art director and fashion photographer who achieved renown in the 1940s and ’50s with high-contrast, dreamy portraits of sylphlike models, then re-emerged in the ’90s as a fine-art photographer after a cache of lost negatives resurfaced, died on Monday at her home in Manhattan. She was 94.

A very inspirational and incredibly talented photographer is no longer with us. RIP Lillian.
