Stunning Fashion Photography in the 1950s by Gleb Derujinsky

Born 1925 in New York City, American fashion photographer Gleb Derujinsky began his photographic career in the 1950s when he was brought into the select ranks of Harper’s Bazaar magazine by its infamous editor Carmel Snow and art director Alexey Brodovitch.

Alongside of Irving Penn and Richard Avedon, Derujinsky’s approach to photography, which was always deeply observant of the unfolding of real time, was harnessed to fashion by Snow and Brodovitch in a vital way.

Derujinsky’s best fashion photographs are typified by the frisson between high fashion in the 1950s and 1960s with the dynamism of locations and urban scenarios. Eileen Ford, founder of Ford Models agency, described him as an “early visionary on a path that others were to follow.”

These stunning photos are part of his work that Derujinsky took fashion portraits of classic beauties in the 1950s.
