Mark Show is considered one of the best photographers in the genre of fashion in between 1950′s-1960′s. To the public, he is better known for his work for Life magazine (starting from 1952 Show shot 27 covers and more than 100 fashion stories) and of course, for his work with the Kennedy family.

However, the book with name Dior Glamour: 1952-1962 shines the lights on his most important epoque in history of his career, his association with Christian Dior.

Show had an opportunity to capture rare shots from behind the scenes of Dior’s empire, and models outings as well as actresses in prominent ensembles of the designer. On these photographers you can see beyond the fashion and into the stylistic approach from a journalist perspective in the atmosphere which they were made.

Additional charm is added by the fact the majority of photographs from Dior’s Glamour collection: 1952-1962 were found in personal archives of the designer and weren’t published earlier. You can see the creations on his photographs yourself from the 15th of October where the book will appear on the shelves of Amazon.
