Published August 1, 1953

Lord David George Brownlow Cecil Burghley, a renowned British athlete, is seen here on a golf course and is all smiles. He wears a classic three-piece suit with a most gentlemanly cane and top hat. Burghley competed in the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris (110m hurdles), the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam (400m hurdles gold medalist and 110m hurdles semifinal), and the 1932 Summer Games in Los Angeles (4x400m relay team silver medalist and 400m hurdles fifth place). He served on the International Olympic Committee for 48 years starting in 1933 and was chairman of the Organizing Committee of the 1948 Summer Olympics in London. The photograph, by Toni Frissell, appeared in the August 1, 1953, Vogue.
(American) One of Vogue's first female photographers, Toni Frissell is considered among the magazine's most pioneering artists. Where earlier photographers relied upon controlled studio settings and static poses, Frissell placed her subjects en milieu and in motion. By the end of the 1930s the action photography she made famous became a leitmotif of fashion photography generally. Also noted for her imaginative camera angles she would go to great lengths, often at the risk of personal injury, to get her shot. While pregnant she was discovered by Mr. Nast lying on the floor. She recalls: "I saw next to me a beautifully creased pair of pants and perfectly polished shoes. I looked up and there was Condé Nast himself looking down at me. He said 'What are you doing down there?' I answered 'Well, I'm interested in the way it looks from down here.'" Her adventuresome spirit took her all over the globe. During World War II she was commissioned by the Women's Army Corps to photograph the movements of the Red Cross. Her subsequent photographs are some of the most harrowing of the war and detail it's very real human cost.
