(Russian, 1908-1992) A staff photographer for Vogue and Glamour during the 1940s and 50s, the heyday of the famed Vogue Studio. While there was a journalistic quality to his work, he was able to capture candid moments with a witty eye and a whimsical style. His portraits reveal casual and sometimes intimate moments and his fashion shots are elegant, cinematic, and show an appreciation of beauty. A natural technician, Joffé experimented with color both inside and outside the studio. In addition to his editorial work, Joffé also did a large amount of commercial work, including the original "Marlboro Man" campaign for R. J. Reynolds in 1954.
