Frissell had a long and successful career as a fashion and portrait photographer as well as a photojournalist, yet she is not widely known. This book is an admiring look at her life and some of her work by her daughter, who gathered the photographs shown here from the Toni Frissell collection at the Library of Congress. Because Frissell was trusted by the wealthy and famous, her portraits of luminaries like Winston Churchill and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor show relaxed subjects. Her war images depict fatigue and loss in weary faces. But it is her fashion photography that truly glows in this collection of duotones. By placing models in outdoor locales and adding drama through natural light, surf, stone, sand, or forest, Frissell revolutionized fashion photography. The medium had been strictly a studio effort until she merged models and nature into stunning visuals that seem to be separated from time and trends, producing a commercial portfolio that is nevertheless art.
