The women of Nina Leen
We have made a selection of the best Black & White pictures Nina Leen captured for Life magazine. Nina Leen, a russian-born, was one of the first women who worked as a photographer. In 1939 Life hired her and from that moment on Leen could do more than 40 cover pages, many fashion photographies and street reportages. Her pictures reflect perfectly the life and style of women in the 40s and 50s: how they dressed, moved, posed… Take a look to their outfits, we love those fabrics and patterns.
