Glamour of the 1950s.


These photos depict a very common style of the 1950s in glamour photography.
There were however no modelling agencies and this made it difficult in terms of finding professionals.
Most of the support staff of make up crews, lighting, costume and props was also missing.

Most of the photographers worked with women who were willing to have their photo taken, in many cases models were asked if they would have their photo taken off the street.
Then there was no question of having a location chosen or a costume selected. Everything was done extempore.
