Erwin Blumenfeld - Photographer
a bio from http://www.fotobibliografica.vanined...blumenfeld.htm :
"Erwin Blumenfeld (1897-1969) grew up in Berlin and absorbed the influences of the Berlin dadaists and surrealists, which he displayed in his early collages. He worked in the studio of Martin Munkacsi, but later in New York as a fashion photographyer he developed a style worlds apart from Munkasci's, marked by an extravagant artificiality and heady eroticism. Some of his favourite techniques included solarization, screens, wet silk, and elaborately contrived shadows and angles."
And he worked in Holland and Paris before the war.

thanks for the thread and pictures fredo, i'm glad you found this forum

my favourite is the first image, it's so glamorous and yet it transports a bit of the adrenaline feeling of hanging high in the air
