About Frank Horvat

Frank Horvat left an indelible mark on fashion photography, moving it outside of the studio. His work, which displays the photographer’s casual and photojournalistic eye, has been featured in Elle, Esquire, and Vogue, and he worked for the Magnum Agency from 1959 to 1961. In his 1958 photography series of strippers in New Orleans, he treats his subjects with the same sensitivity as the haute couture models of his fashion work. After abandoning his fashion photography career, Horvat adopted digital photography and turned to capturing domestic life. In more recent work he has photographed trees, rural scenes, and his family, in images that reveal the artist's keen eye for the beauty found in fleeting moments.

Italian, b. 1928, Croatia, based in Paris, France
