(Russian, 1900-1968) Huené came from an aristocratic Russian family that was forced from the country during the Revolution. An illustrator-turned-photographer, Huené began working for Vogue in the Paris office in the early 1920s. In 1925, he was promoted to chief photographer, a position he held for the next nine years. A mentor to Horst, Huené's imagery is evocative and glamorous. His photographs rely on a balanced composition and a classical sensibility. His 1930 fashion portrait of two bathers looking off into the distance is considered one of the greatest photographs ever taken.
