Though he was one of the most popular fashion photographers of the 1940s and 1950s, Fernand Fonssagrives’ work is rarely exhibited. Part of ‘The New York School,’ he was a mentor to Richard Avedon, and was married to one of the mid-century’s most successful fashion models, Lisa Fonssagrives (before she married Irving Penn) before tiring of the world of commercial photography and moving to Spain, where he became a sculptor. See the first Los Angeles show of Fonssagrives’ photos at the Duncan Miller Gallery in Santa Monica.
