1. Photographer Lillian Bassman

    Bassman was a magazine art director and fashion photographer who achieved renown in the 1940s and ’50s with high-contrast, dreamy portraits of sylphlike models. She was ranked among photography legends like Richard Avedon and Irving Penn because of her ability to blend commercial and artistic techniques.
