Sam Haskins was the biggest deal among photographers and art directors in the 1960s. He's shown in 1961 concentrating on posing a model amidst a battery of lights and an imposing large format view camera.
Sam Haskins did his work all over the world and from, of all places, South Africa. Before Mandela and during apartheid. He published more than a few books of his work and introduced the world to models who looked like beautiful but real.
I know you would prefer to feast your eyes on the photos and not be annoyed by further photo captions.
This is one of his best, so good in fact that the pose seems to have been appropriated by others, as written in Sam's blog.
I confess that I found these lovely images on the Internet, and suggest you search for more gems there by simply searching Sam Haskins.
