photos and stories from the Powerhouse Museum
This great fashion shot comes from the Bruno Benini photography archive that we acquired with funding assistance from the Australian Government’s National Cultural Heritage Account in 2009. Last year we held the exhibition Creating the look: Benini and fashion photography to celebrate the work that Bruno and his stylist wife Hazel had achieved. The following statement about this image comes from our collection record.
