Today I saw the link below on the facebook page for Drexel's Historic Costume Collection, and was awed by what I discovered. Some pretty inspirational and absolutely gorgeous photographs by Gordon Parks, ground breaking American photographer.
Gordon Parks' Fashion Photography
These images are fantastic- this is definitely a link I will bookmark for future use as fashion inspiration. Just a quick Google search will turn up more amazing shots by Parks, including one of Ingrid Bergman, but the pictures on the New York Times websites are real gems among his work. Take a look!
