Stunning Black and White Fashion Photography Which Tell Us About the Time, the Ideals, and What Was Expected of American Women During the Mid-20th Century

Dan Wynn was a prolific photographer for 45 years, starting in 1947. He was contemporary of Richard Avedon and Irving Penn and became well known for his food photography, but his stunning fashion and beauty work, portraits of celebrities and cultural icons and innovative advertising photography have been largely overlooked.

His fashion images of perfectly coiffed women tell us a lot about the time, the ideals, and what was expected of American women during the mid-twentieth century.
