a Blumenfeld Box


“Day and night I try, in my studio with its six two-thousand watt suns, balancing between the extremes of the impossible, to shake loose the real from the unreal, to give visions body, to penetrate into unknown transparencies.” Erwin Blumenfeld

when you look through his oeuvre you will see why Erwim Blumenfeld is one of the masters of fashion photography-he was taking photographs as a child in Berlin- I've no doubt he was coloring with crayons too.
When he fled to the States in 1941 from war torn Europe, his eye was ready to See that unknown.
He has to inspired artists today, saying Brilliant-or why didn't I think of that?

Don't you agree? His work will have you saying the same & Yes-It is a Blumenfeld.

Now go get you Crayolas out.
