Frank Horvat’s photographic career spans nearly seven decades. His photographs

for the leading post-war fashion magazines in Europe and the United States

solidified his reputation as one of the outstanding representatives of the genre:

DIE ZEIT recently named him “a legend in fashion photography.” Most notably,

Horvat introduced a journalistic, visual vocabulary to his fashion images. In step

with the times, he employed the use of a small-format Leica camera. By shooting

from the hip, he revolutionized the dominant aesthetic of the era. “I wanted

the models to look like real women, and photographed on the street, in real life.

Almost nobody else had done that before. . . . They ultimately led to my success.”

Later in his career, Horvat embraced digital photographic techniques. In his

eighties, he developed his own iPad App, Horvatland, inviting viewers to take a

digital journey through his oeuvre.

We are pleased to offer you two of Frank Horvat’s thoroughly charming 1950s

fashion photographs, at an extremely attractive price. Made on fine Hahnemühle

paper, the pigment prints are housed in a portfolio and accompanied by the

photographer’s 2015 Hatje Cantz catalogue, Please don’t smile. This special

edition is a testament to Frank Horvat’s pioneering presentation of women in the

post-war world: “I tried to shoot fashion photographs that had an ideal.”
