Classic fashion photography at Forbes Gallery, NYC

Mainbocher Corset, Hurst P. HurstHorst P. Horst, legendary fashion photographer who used the platinum palladium photographic process (as opposed to silver prints), is responsible for some of the most iconic fashion photography of the 20th Century.

If you like to get lost in such images, as I do, then check out the exhibit, through March 15th, at the Forbes Gallery (62 5th Ave. at 12th St.).
