Vintage photo love

Right now I can't get enough of classic vintage fashion photography. These images are by photographer Tom Palumbo and were featured mainly in Vogue and Harpers Bazaar. You'll notice the same model in a few of the pictures, she is Anne St Marie, wife of Tom Palumbo, and one of the most famous models of the 1950's. She continued to model during the sixties but was not as popular. The link to Tom's Flickr page is here, you'll find many more great fashion images from the fifties and sixties.

Fantastic fashion photography! The one thing I have against many of the fashion spreads in magazines today is that they are wonderfully artistic but you cannot see the damn clothes!

Thanks guys! Anairam - I agree totally about some of the present day fashion photography, the whole point is to see the clothes!
