{the magic of henry clarke}

{1957 — joanna mccormick for chanel}

I remember the first time I fell in love with the work of Henry Clarke (1918-1996) — it was as if I were falling, falling into a world of impossible elegance and incredible sophistication . . .

Included are a few photographs not published in the original post. Although Clarke’s work reached its height in the 1950’s and 60’s, it will always remain timeless.
