George Hoyningen-Huene, Divers (Photographer Horst P. Horst in Swimwear by Izod, photo for Vogue, 1930)

Hoyningen-Huene’s best-known photograph shows two bathers—one, his lover and protégé, Horst P. Horst; the other, an androgynous female model—facing away from the camera, staring across an infinite horizon toward the “sea” (in reality, the balustrade on the roof of Vogue’s Paris studio).
