Eugene ‘Gene’ Vernier (1920–2011) worked as a fashion photographer for British Vogue from 1954 to 1967, during one of the most exciting periods in fashion history.
Shooting of-the-moment looks from the likes of Christian Dior and Emilio Pucci and top models including Celia Hammond, Jean Shrimpton, and current Vogue creative director Grace Coddington,
Vernier worked with some of the biggest names in the industry. Yet he was relatively unconcerned with celebrity.
Interested only in bringing out the very best in each frame, Vernier was a true craftsman in the fashion photography trade.
