The unusual angle from which this photograph was taken turns a quotidian snapshot into anything but. A model gamely poses against a large, old-fashioned yellow bicycle. She wears a forest-green tailored wool jacket, a gray flannel knee-length skirt, two-piece Tyrolian socks, loafers, and an embroidered skull cap. The intense colors and eerily perfect shadows give this image an illustrated quality. Toni Frissell's image appeared in the August 15, 1940, Vogue.

- The Print
- The Artist
A pioneering and inventive photographer, Toni Frissell (1907 – 1988) effectively utilized a still camera to capture an abundance of action. Working for Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, Frissell took photography out of the studio, shooting unprecedented fashion photos of active women outdoors. She was the first female photographer for Sports Illustrated, and was one of the only women taking sports photos for several decades. Frissell also took battlefront photos during World War II, utilizing her emotive images to encourage support for women and African-Americans in the military. Preferring small cameras that provided spontaneous-looking photographs, Frissell produced an astounding 340,000 images in her lifetime.
