George Hoyningen Huene was a Russian baron who emigrated to Paris early in the 1920s. He had close family links with the fashion industry and initially worked as a sketch artist in his sister’s fashion house. After a period studying Cubist painting and designing background sets for American Vogue, he began to take fashion photographs for the magazine. His early influences led him towards a highly distinctive style characterised by its geometry and tonal contrasts.
