…He was a Parisian photographer who loved….


…the feminine form…
…He was most know for this amazing photo…

….that defined his style.

My favorite Jeanloup Sieff photo is the top one, taken in Palm Beach in 1964 for Harper’s Bazaar. I’ve often wondered: What does that beautiful woman think of that guy?

What do you think?

Sieff died in 2000, but his estate maintains a wonderful website in his name. Browse through all the gorgeous photos {here}.

    The beautiful woman is intrigued by the dashing man, yet guarded, as her instincts tell her he is a scoundrel. These photographs are beautiful. I just lost myself in the Jeanloup site for half an hour.

    P.S. I would feel honored if you would consider adding me to your blogroll, Tina!

    His work embodied the same sense of style and classicism that Chanel created.

    I believe the woman is summing up his charachter – which she finds charming but probably not worth risking her heart for. Fantastic photos, thanks for sharing.
