Blumenfeld's special repertoire of shapes and colours that he developed after made him one of the most original fashion photographers in New York. He worked freelance for magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, Life and Vogue. The exhibition of his work in Foam focuses on colour photography that he developed in his period in New York (1941-1960) and gave him worldwide recognition.
The exhibition will be opened by granddaughter Nadia Blumenfeld-Charbit and is on view at Foam until 14 April 2019.
