#836 - Georges Dambier

“Darling, you are in love with my camera!”

~ Georges Dambier


Georges Dambier did not conform to the standard technique of fashion photograph in his era. He disliked the style of emotionless models, perfectly posed before the camera. Instead he created images of models smiling, laughing and in the action. He was known for his jovial nature behind the camera which only helped him.

Capturing Sophie's natural elegance in the street of George's beloved Paris, this image captures all that makes George's photographs so great.
