Lot description
An original vintage silver gelatin print taken by celebrated portrait photographer Louis Faurer.

Louis Faurer, born Louis Fourer in Philadelphia on August 28, 1916, had legally changed his name to the way it was misspelled at school by his graduation. After purchasing his first camera in 1937 and wininng a local photography contest, Faurer graduated from the School of Commercial Art and Lettering in 1940. He served as a civilian in World War II as a photographic technician for the US Army Signal Corps in Philadelphia before embarking upon a career in fashion photography. After his first fashion portrait was published by Junior Bazaar in 1948, he worked for Flair, Glamour, Harper’s Bazaar, Look, Mademoiselle, Marie-Claire, Seventeen, and Vogue. Faurer is also well known for his street photography, shot primarily in New York City. He won National Endowment for the Arts grants in 1978, 1981, and 1982 and a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1979. His work is exhibited worldwide. Faurer passed away in 2001, 17 years after injuries sustained from a traffic accident ended his photography career.
