Clifford Coffin. Photographs from Vogue 1945 to 1955

This book explores the work of Clifford Coffin, one of the most innovative and intriguing fashion photographers of the 1940s and 1950s. Even Norman Parkinson – who did not readily praise his colleagues – admitted that Coffins fashion photographs were the only other Vogue pictures he ever really admired. One colleague at Vogue claimed that Coffin was the first photographer to actually think fashion, sometimes more than the fashion editors.
