Creating photographic masterpieces of the post-war’s heady fashion excess, Henry Clarke’s (1918-1961) work for American, British and French Vogue spanned three decades. His work was so highly regarded that his American editor often assigned the unusual distinction of shooting a 24-page spread of an exotic location for a single issue.
