Frank Horvat (1928–2020) changed the course of fashion photography forever. The Italian-born photographer made his debut as a photojournalist in France, where he lived and worked for the rest of his life. By the mid-1950s, Horvat was collaborating with the biggest fashion magazines in the world, including Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. Revolutionizing fashion photography through a more realistic lens, Horvat photographed models on the streets, in the squares, and alongside the locals of postwar Europe. Horvat’s fresh and often imitated style, which brought reportage techniques to the forefront of fashion photography, impressed designers and inspired fashion photographers for generations to come.
