The Best Features of a £700,000 Photograph, Latest Sale Week 27072015

Latest Sale reports from the Business Directory, Photography category (#businessdirectoryphotography) and discusses what it takes to create a photograph worth £700,000.

Dovima with the Elephants is an infamous fashion photograph taken in Paris by fashion photographer Richard Avedon (#richardavedon) in August 1955. The photograph showcases Christian Dior’s (#christiandior1955) latest collection during that time.

Avedon used one of Vogue’s highest paid models – Dovima to captivate the classic style of Christian Dior fashion. The dramatic juxtaposition between the model’s grace and the brutish power of the elephant was achieved by the symmetry between the elephants and Dovima. A Latest Sale, Business Directory highlight, Dovima and Christian Dior can only be described as a classic in the making.
