John Rawlings (1912 – 1970) single-handedly gave commercial fashion photography a sharp artistic focus. He transformed it into a medium brimming with color, light and fascinating composition. Rawlings created over 200 magazine covers for Conde-Nast. When his work for “Vogue” and “Glamour” hit the stands, sales and respect for fashion photography skyrocketed.
