Join the Museum Curator to take a trip through the highlights of the exhibition Louise Dahl-Wolfe: A Style of her Own. Louise Dahl-Wolfe (1895–1989) is one of the most influential fashion photographers of the 20th century. She revitalized the Hollywood portrait and invigorated fashion photography of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. During two decades spent working for Harper’s Bazaar (1936–58), Dahl-Wolfe pioneered the use of natural lighting in fashion photography, shooting on location and outdoors. Her modernist outlook changed American visual culture and influenced a school of artists – including Richard Avedon. This is the first solo show of her work outside the United States.
