The Italian photographer started out as a photo journalist working mainly as a reporter during the 1950s. He was a member of Magnum from 1958 to 1961. However, Frank Horvat is mainly known for his expressive fashion shots, mostly taken with a Leica, which were published in magazines like Harper’s Bazaar or Vogue. His images are governed by a dynamic, spontaneous visual aesthetic which is also clearly reflected by the "Strip-Tease" photographs. The especially wide format of this print is explained by the annotations on the verso which states it was to be illustrated as a double page spread.
