Underwater photography by Toni Frissell, published in Harper's Bazaar in December 1947.
Toni Frissell was an American photographer who was active from the 1930s to the 1970s. She was known for her work in fashion photography, as well as for her portraits and photojournalism. Frissell was one of the first female photographers to work for Vogue magazine, and her images appeared in a number of other high-profile publications, including Harper's Bazaar, Life, and Sports Illustrated. Her style was characterized by its elegant composition, innovative use of light, and an attention to detail that made her work both visually striking and timeless. Throughout her career, Frissell documented a wide range of subjects, from the lives of soldiers during World War II to the fashion and society of the mid-20th century.
Her innovative and experimental approach to photography, and her underwater images were no exception. Frissell's photographs of women underwater were often striking and imaginative, capturing the fluidity and grace of the female form in a new and unique way. These images were a departure from the traditional fashion and portrait photography that she was known for, and they demonstrate her ability to push the boundaries of her medium and create truly original and imaginative works of art. To this day, Frissell's underwater photographs remain some of her most memorable and visually compelling images.
