Edwin Bower Hesser

Time Period: 1913-1947
Location: 34 West 58th Street, Lab at 146 West 56th St. NYC

"A versatile artist whose plein air nudes of Showgirls in natural light became the academic standard for art photographers in the 1920s and whose portraits of movie actresses and stage stars were greatly influential images of glamour from 1925 to 1930. He was one of the few portraitist who regularly depicted sitters head on. His penchant for back-lighting so that hair seem lined with light, gave certain of his 1920s sitters a halo or aura."
