Harry Meerson: Born in Warsaw, Poland in either 1910 or 1911, Meerson was an important figure in Parisian photography in the middle decades of the twentieth century; some of his pupils and protégés included the photographers Wilhelm Maywald, Mirella Ricciardi and Genia (or Eugène) Rubin. The latter took over Meerson’s Paris studio after he left for America during WWII and briefly joined his brother Lazare Meerson, a film director in Hollywood. Brassaï and Dora Maar were both regular visitors to his Paris studio, and Meerson edited Maar’s fashion photographs. Meerson’s own fashion work was a mainstay of that market, and his clients included Christian Dior, Balenciaga, Lanvin, etc. He had work published in the influential magazine “Photographie”, which was published by Arts et Métiers Graphiques, as well as many of the top fashion magazines of the period including Harper’s Bazaar, Femina, Votre Beaute, Plasir de Paris and Die Dame
