A Return and Rework of “Plunging Necklines of 1949”


Colorized Plunging Necklines

The past few months, I have been asked several times for a higher resolution version of this photo. The photo was originally taken by Nina Leen for Life Magazine in 1949 and for some reason I worked with a lower res version. This wasn’t intentional and I decided to revisit and touch up some details on this colorized photo as well as bump up the resolution.

The original black and white photo was taken by Nina Leen in 1949. Nina Leen was one of the first woman photographers for LIFE Magazine and was known for her photos of animals, adolescents and American women.

I hope this will tie everyone over until I complete some of the highly intricate colorizations I am wrapping up. As you can tell from the original posting, this new version of the photo is much larger in size,more vibrant and far cleaner.
