two bathers

George Hoyningen-Huene :: Divers, Paris, 1930 

Probably Hoyningen-Huene’s best-known photograph.It shows two bathers: one, his lover and protégé, Horst P. Horst, the other, an androgynous female model; both facing away from the camera, staring across an infinite horizon toward the ‘sea’ [actually, the balustrade on the roof of Vogue’s Paris studio]
