    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 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.

    These interior, exterior shots are lovely.

    The Astor home feature esp transportive. Haven't seen a Vogue feature on Brooke since the mid 2000s.

    It's so nice reading these paper gems so far removed and untouched by the fickle, lightening speed wondering eye of social media!
