Art and the Photograph

Toni Frissell 1950

Three Photographers work we like at Glamoursplash: Toni Frissell, Sarah Moon and Lillian Bassman. All have worked for high end fashion publications such as Harpers Bazzar, Vogue and even Sports Illustrated. These works of art inspire me and I love the way they challenge me to look at something in a completely different way.

Sarah Moon captures images that are somewhat soft focus and impressionistic.

Reduce what isn't needed, be alert in case the hoped-for unpredictable moment occurs, seek out that gut-satisfying emotion that you've got something special. It doesn't matter if you succeed every time, or every fifth time, or every twenty-fifth time; what matters is looking for it and being open to it when it arrives.
