When I first saw Frissell's work, I became intrigued by her compositions. All the waves, ripples, wrinkles and reflections--it's all poetry. The Kennedy wedding shots are stunning. For all the tradition of their event, I think Jackie's off-the-shoulder neckline, short gloves and her carefree hair--it's these details that just take the cake. The Frissell photographs capture these aspects perfectly. Being a writer myself, I love the story: she's fired from her caption writing job at Vogue and picks up a camera. Doesn't it seem that sometimes these turns in life happen and we learn what we really want to do? What would you try out if you found some new freedom?
