This picture by Horst is an extremely unusual way of seeing Babe Paley, not that she didn’t love gardening or cooking or doing other normal things but we are used to seeing her in haute couture and beautiful gowns at fabulous parties and the best restaurants with the best company, even though for someone who’s getting dirty in the back yard, she still looks pretty chic. As we know; the writer Truman Capote ( ‘In Cold Blood’ and ‘Breakfast at Tiffany- later on, a movie) was incredibly smart and had an amazing sense of humour, so all the rich ladies loved him and wanted to hang out with him- he had a nickname for all of them: "The Swans" and probably the most ‘swan’ of them all was this lady in this picture: Barbara ‘Babe’ Paley. Who had the longest neck and was considered the chicest women of the ‘club’: Lee Radziwill, C Z Guess, Marella Agnelli, Slim Keith, Gloria Guinness, were also part of it, but everyone knew she was her favourite. “Mrs Paley had only one fault: she was perfect,” he wrote in his diary. “Otherwise, she was perfect.” The “Around That Time, portfolios are literally a time capsule of style and design from the 1960s-1980s. The images chosen for this portfolio are a who’s who of the tastemakers and influencers from one of the most exciting and innovative periods of the twentieth century. Never before was there a moment quite like this, and never before or since has there been a photographer of such unique talent as Horst P. Horst.”

  • Horst P. Horst German-American, 1906-1999 (born Horst Paul Albert Bohrmann) was one of the towering figures of 20th-century fashion photography. Best known for his work with Vogue—who called him “photography’s alchemist”—Horst rose to prominence in Paris in the interwar years, publishing his first work with the magazine in 1931. In the decades that followed, Horst’s experimentations with radical composition, nudity, double exposures, and other avant-garde techniques would produce some of the most iconic fashion images ever, like Mainbocher Corset and Lisa with Harp (both 1939). As The New York Times once described, “Horst tamed the avant-garde to serve fashion.” Though associated most closely with fashion photography, Horst captured portraits of many of the 20th century’s brightest luminaries, dabbling with influences as far-ranging as Surrealism and Romanticism. “I like taking photographs because I like life,” he once said. “And I love photographing people best of all because most of all I love humanity.”
