1964. How to make a shot of a girl modelling a housecoat interesting? Create a situation – she’s just received the letter she’s been waiting breathlessly for. Capture her with an animated expression on her face. Put her in an unexpected setting that combines elegance and rusticity – where is she and what is she doing here?
A caption on the back of the photo reads:
NEXT TO NOTHING
Lightness plus warmth – fluffy white nylon and wool housecoat, bound with satin.
