Evelyn Tripp in a photo by Lillian Bassman for Harper’s Bazaar. Bassman, who worked for Junior Bazaar and Harper’s Bazaar from 1940 – 1965, was noted for her indirect, soft-focused or out-of-focus and sometimes furtive view of her models. They never stare straight into the camera lens but are caught unawares, thinking or daydreaming or simply resting. When she left Harper’s, feeling that her type of photography had gone out of style, she burned all her negatives. In the 1990′s she began to work with Photoshop, reworking her older prints in a starker and more forceful manner.
