"There is no other country in the world, besides my own, whose way of life I like so much. I love English traditions, English politeness, English architecture. I even love English cooking."
Clifford Coffin is known as one of Vogue's "lost" photographers but for over a decade he produced some of its most elegant fashion pictures, as this selection from British Vogue's archives demonstrate.
Many of his sitters were captured at the outset of their careers; Audrey Hepburn was an early discovery of his – she modelled for him before turning to acting.
Coffin's cutting edge photography was synonymous with Vogue's vision and this is a truly beautiful collection of fashion images to grace any wall.
