Rendezvous With a 22-Year-Old Jane Fonda in New York in 1960

In 1960, French photographer Paul Slade followed the steps of Jane Fonda, then 22-year-old, around New York City. The young actress at the time was taking the courses at the Actors Studio with Lee Strasberg, and performed in the play There was a Little Girl, directed by Joshua Logan, on Broadway.

Below are 23 fascinating photographs of a young Fonda relaxing in her apartment, taking dance classes, walking on the streets of New York, working at Hicks & Son, and visiting her father, actor Henry Fonda, captured by Slade:
