Toni Frissell - 1939 Sink or SwimIn this Toni Frissell photograph, a model swims with dolphins underwater in a water tank. She wears a striped, crinkled one-piece swimsuit by Brest. The playful image appeared in the January 1, 1939, Vogue.
I've always been enamoured with her underwater photography work and this piece is no exception. Toni actually took up photography as a form of therapy after her brother, who was a documentary filmmaker, disappeared at sea.
