An evocative title for a documentary I’d like to watch about the life and work of Louise Dahl-Wolfe.
You can see from these black and white photos how apt the title is.
I already knew of Dahl-Wolfe, who famously discovered Lauren Bacall, and also took the photos of Diana Vreeland in the New Mexico desert dressed in a matador’s hat, with a rose behind one ear
but I didn’t realise how versatile her photos were, and how well they captured the independence and glamour of the 1940s heroine.
This surrealist one is like Erwin Blunenfeld’s covers for Vogue – I wonder who inspired who?
Most of all I love the confidence and power of these.
