Gift of the photographer to Charlotte and Harry Gordon, circa 1966

This photograph comes from the collection of Charlotte Gordon, mixed media artist, sculptor, and one of the first female Art Directors in the New York magazine industry. In the 1950s as Art Director for Seventeen Magazine, Gordon worked closely with artists such as Andy Warhol, Garry Winogrand, Lee Friedlander, Joel Meyerowitz, and R. O. Blechman. Gordon and her husband Harry, the inventor of Poster Dresses, formed a lifelong friendship with Friedlander and his wife, Maria. In the decades after the Gordon family moved to Europe in the 1960s, this bond continued through visits and the exchange of letters and artwork.
