I've been saving part of these images that I found here for ever. Most of these photographs were taken by Henry Clarke around the 60's and I love that there were a lot of classic ladies wearing striped outfits. Henry Clarke was an American fashion photographer who after meeting Celil Beaton at Vogue, became enchanted by the magic of photography, moved to Paris and soon started working for Harper's Bazaar and Vogue. Ada from Classiq recently made a great post about him. Check it out. These images are just so inspiring and admirable to look at, especially now-a-days when there is so much obnoxious celebrity shows going on. Sometimes I get to ask myself how did we go from there to now?
This vision of these models overlooking the ocean in Palermo is what I really want for my summer. More please.
This photograph of Susan Murray also by Henry Clarke 1966 reminds me of the Whirling Dervishes in Turkey.
