Model at Musei Capitolini with the hand of the Emperor Constantine. For Harper’s Bazaar, Italy, 1962. Photograph by Jeanloup Sieff.
With great tenacity, Sieff pursued a personal and highly effective signature style, soaked in playful imagination with a touch of irony. Seldom working in colour, he favoured the discipline of black and white, often using to his advantage the spatial distortion of wide-angle lenses, the dramatic potential of shadow and exploitation of tone.
