Mystical Fashion

"My life began with the discovery of the magic of chemistry, the interplay of shade and light and the double-edged problem of positive and negative" Erwin Blumenfeld

Erwin Blumenfeld was an experimenter with special vision for beauty and fashion.
An american photographer born in Germany. A jewish who escaped to USA. Erwin was part of the Dada and put his hands in paint, photography, writing, drawing & photomontage. His visual poetry was part of Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. He was the highest paid freelance photographer in NY. Many recognize him for his Vogue cover of Jean Patchett.
Erwin Blumenfeld was a true artist!
I wish today we could see more manifestations of art, more creativity, genuine adventurous artistic magazine covers.
