John French - Fashion Photographer of the 1950s & 60s

John French (1907-1966) was an English fashion and portrait photographer. Much of his career was spent photographing high fashion models in the 1950s and swinging 60s.

Isn't this a cute ensemble? Love the cover up shift with the same design as the bikini.

In 1942 he had married Vere Denning (1910-91), a fashion journalist, who gave his photographic archive to the Victoria and Albert Museum. Many of hits prints are offered for sale on the V&A website.

You can view more of his work here.

Great pics! They manage to easily convey the youthful sense of fun that was such a part of the '60s.
