Pioneering force in fashion photography, Erwin Blumenfeld lead the way for future fashion greats, including Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, and Herb Ritts. All these photographers in their time infused art into fashion and have been remembered to Art History for their hybridization, their elevation of the commercial to the fine. The European style of Blumenfeld splashed the covers Vogue and Harper's Bazaar with undertones to Dada and Surrealism. The unique vision and experimental techniques put him on the map. The images included in the Houk Gallery exhibition are from a private collection and highlight the diversity of the artist's work. Though this is only a taste of what the photographer was capable of they do allow us the unique chance to view original prints full of dramatic elegance and sophistication.
