Berlin had enough sorrows and tragedies to appreciate some lightening up.
A certain lightness and humor ran through my fashion work, and that was very daring for those times. Fashion then was mostly seriously dull and few realized that clothes could be highlighted quite well in humorous situations.
Fortunately, I could usually rely upon the people I liked to work with for some spontaneity and Axel could even be counted upon for some wildness when the atmosphere could use it.
After all, catalog fashion photos are about as boring as photography can get. I wanted to be quite far away from that. And having grown up in a family of resident women's wear clothing buyers in NYC, I wanted a bit of rebellion.
