Pierre Boulat

A look at American women


In 1957 Pierre was asked by Life Magazine to look at US «most interesting natural beauties, its women. He roamed in and around New York and Chicago, recording women eating ice cream by the gallon, wearing funny hats and pin curls, trying to look older if they are young and younger if they are old. But he also saw unconcerned good looks he never new in Paris, a determination to be mistress of a carrier and outgoing friendliness that he summed up as an expression of dreams, purpose and casual beauty.»
