  • Catalogue Essay

    “[Mainbocher Corset] was created by emotion It was the last photo I took in Paris before the war. I left the studio at 4:00 a.m., went back to the house, picked up my bags and caught the 7:00 a.m. train to Le Havre to board the Normandie… The photograph is peculiar— for me. While I was taking it, I was thinking of all that I was leaving behind.”
