Lillian Bassman

Lillian Bassman is a female painter and photographer that used an experimental process to create art. Her work centered around the feminine; always elegant yet edgy for the time. I found this really interesting article about her tiredness of the world of fashion photography and how she destroyed a bunch of her negative prints in retaliation. Interestingly enough, she went back many years later to try to salvage the pieces and create something new from what she dug out of her trash can. Check out the article and some pictures!
