George Hoyningen-Huene:Master of Light
George Hoyningen-Huene began at « Vogue » as an illustrator and then became a supremely successful fashion photographer. Moving to « Harper’s Bazaar », he extended his range to portraiture and travel, capturing artists, composers and Hollywood stars including Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Igor Stravinsky and Jean Cocteau.
