Summer seems so far away during these cold days and nights, yet all we can think of is relaxing by the beach under the warm sun. Richard Rutledge’s vintage fashion photographs capture our fantasy of enjoying a warm day at the beach.
Relatively unknown, Rutledge worked as an in house photographer for American Vogue for 15 years after World War II. Known for his candid approach to photography, he often used playful banter to get animated expressions out of his models. Rutledge captured a carefree attitude in his images perfectly.
