Louise Dahl-Wolfe transformed and modernized the look of fashion magazines in the thirties, forties and fifties, the period during which she was active, and hence played a significant role in providing the world of fashion with a new image. Similarly, she breathed fresh life into the portraits of Hollywood stars and was regularly mentioned in the same sentence as the most prestigious photographers of her time, such as Edward Steichen, Horst P. Horst, George Hoyningen-Huene, Irving Penn or Martin Munka, later influencing others who would earn global fame, such as Richard Avedon. This book spans the extent of her career as a fashion photographer and includes a large selection of her photographs for Harper's Bazaar, where she worked for two decades, as well as her most emblematic front covers. But it also features her portraits and nudes, an aspect of her oeuvre which has been largely overlooked. Together, these photographs reveal the changes experienced by our society and lifestyle in the middle of the turbulent twentieth century.
