Brilliant photographer Ralph Steiner (1899 – 1986) spent some time examining the photographs of Murray Korman (1902 - 1961) and, to his surprise, came away finding his work to be very interesting:
"Murray Korman is the man whose pictures you see outside the musical shows and in girlie magazines... After four hours of looking I was dizzy. I figured that no man could take such pictures for 17 years and get satiated with lusciousness and bored by the sameness of the girls. I figured that all that kept Korman going was the profit motive. But when I went to his studio on Broadway I found I was all wrong. Taking pictures - his Art - is far more important than money."
Pictured above is a very young Lauren Bacall (1924 - 2014).
