Tom Palumbo

Tom+Palumbo+(15)

A favorite photographer of mine is Tom Palumbo who mainly worked in the 50’s and 60’s. As his name suggests he was born in Molfetta, Italy and came to America as a child.
By the late 40’s he was working as a fashion photographer and became staff photographer for Vogue between in 1959 and 1962
He was married to Ann St Marie, a supermodel before the term was coined and she appears in many of its pictures.
What I love about them is Palumbo’s use of color, which is incredibly rich and vibrant without seeming fake.
And of course there’s no denying the fifties and early sixties knew how to do glamour and style in away that the seventies most definitely didn’t.
