This photograph was shot by Toni Frissell (also known as Antoinette Frissell Bacon), an American photographer who was known for her fashion photography, World War II photographs, portraits of famous Americans and Europeans, children, and women from all walks of life.
Antoinette Frissell was born in 1907 in New York City, New York, but took photos under the name Toni Frissell, even after her marriage to Manhattan socialite McNeil Bacon. She worked with many famous photographers of the day, as an apprentice to Cecil Beaton, and with advice from Edward Steichen. Her initial job, as a fashion photographer for Vogue in 1931, was due to Condé Montrose Nast personally. She later took photographs for Harper’s Bazaar. Her fashion photos, even of evening gowns and such, were often notable for their outdoor settings, emphasizing active women. (+)
Welcome to Part 1 of a “Portugal Photography Series” here on my blog. Today and tomorrow I’ll try to bring this wonderful country onto your screens and tell a few of my vacation stories - no worries: not the usual tourist stuff ;)
So, if you would like to virtually follow me on my journey through Portugal -> feel free to hop on the B-Train. Next stop: Foz do Arelho.
