Karl Bissinger


Classic photographers

“Photographing the artistic life after World War II in a period full of promise, Karl Bissinger took unexpected portraits of the day’s luminaries of high Bohemia—writers, dancers, musicians, painters, journalists, and celebrities for such magazines as Flair, Theatre Arts and Harper’s Bazaar. These photographs capture those lost, illustrious years of artistic and literary life in the late 1940s and 1950s, particularly in New York, but also in London, Paris, Los Angeles, and elsewhere.”
