Women ...

This beautiful 237 page book photographed by Lillian Bassman on various female lives that were lived beneath them, is visually stunning.

This book was recently given to me and if you love black and white photography of the female form ... photographed by a women
(who is still working at the age of 91)
then, this book is a must!

Bassman's signature style offers a sensuous and intimate vision of modern women from the 50's and 60's.
She has influenced fashion designers like John Galliano of Dior.
With more than 150 of her best images reproduced,
this book is a true inspiration.
