A prominent fashion photographer in the 1940s and 1950s, Nina Leen was one of the first female photographers to work for LIFE magazine. She grew up in Europe (Russian born) and her first camera was a Rolleiflex which she used to primarily photograph animals. Nina Leen is mostly known for her animal photography, but in the fashion world, she is well known for her classic and timeless fashion photography.

Jane Mansfield, whom I normally can't stand. I'll tolerate her here, since this is a nice composition (kind of Greco-Roman goddess?) and I can't see her usual 50-point IQ facial expression.
