George Hoyningen-Huené's much-seen 1930 photograph, simply called 'Divers,' depicts the photographer's protégé Horst P. Horst and a model posing in Izod bathing suits. Horst, who soon after became an assistant to the Russian-born lensman and, of course, a photographer in his own right, was a frequent subject of Hoyningen-Huené's pictures. The image's meticulous and formal composition exemplifies both photographers' aesthetic style. This image ran in the July 5, 1930, Vogue.
