"The extraordinary breadth and scope of the work of Toni Frissell (1907-1988) left an indelible mark on American photography. Beautiful, exuberant, and adventurous, Toni Frissell stretched the boundaries of the privileged world into which she was born and became one of the most innovative and renowned photographers of her time. Her work for Vogue and Harper's Bazaar took models out of the studio and into the great outdoors for the first time, revolutionizing fashion photography. Her battlefront photojournalism captured some of the most unforgettably compelling images of World War II. Later, her active interest in participation in a wide variety of sports led her to become the first female staff photographer for Sports Illustrated. And throughout her career, her talent and personal magnetism allowed her to capture unprecedented candid portraits of a fantastically broad spectrum of personalities... In 1971, Toni Frissell donated her life's work - more than 300,000 images - to the Library of Congress, where it has remained largely unpublished until now. This book offers the first overview of the work of this undeservedly overlooked artist with 170 duotone photographs..." Ref LPB0313
