Karen Radkai - Photographer
Karen Radkai is a famed photographer. She was a staff photographer for Vogue magazine during the 50s and 60s. Does anyone have more info on her....I've been looking around but can't find that much...

Two of her American Vogue covers from January 1962. (scanned by me)

She apparently did not just do fashion:

I"m on a roll here ...

Found this recent tidbit interesting: A note to actor, Olivia Hussey from the daughter of Karen Radkai:

Hello Olivia,

You may or may not remember the name. I hope you do. My mother, Karen Radkai, did some wonderful pictures of you at our flat in rue de Rivoli in Paris, some with our dove, Schatzi, some with us children (I must have been 10). I just came across one of the latter and just wanted to say hello and hope you are well. I have very fond memories of you and of that moment. I hope you are well.

Marton (known to the family as marci, pronounced Martzi)

Karen Radkai
I have a fair amount of information on her, as I am her son. What would you like to know? Maybe I can help.

That's right. She actually did lots and lots of interiors, from private homes, to public places (like palaces).... And she began doing reportages and did a lot of advertising. And she began, essentially, as a photo reporter. Her first assignment was in Greece, 1949, for Harper's. I will dig through my tiny archive and scan a few things.
