Thank you to Donna of My OBT for these wonderful vintage fashion photographs by Georges Dambier.

Georges Dambier

This is the exuberant, fashionable, sometimes goofy photography by 1950’s editorial and advertising photographer Georges Dambier. Although the typical fashion photography style of the day was for models to be more like mannequins with blank or aloof facial expressions, Dambier was famous for throwing caution to the wind. His models actually look like they’re doing something, and even more groundbreaking, thinking something, too! Their expressions are anything but blank, and his poses are often a little nutty as well. His photos exude all kinds of character without sacrificing style. It makes me think he was a really great guy.

Whatever his personality, his photos are certainly plenty likeable!
