Camilla Akrans Born Arthur Kanofsky, Art Kane was an Art Director-turned photographer in the second half of the 20th century. A protégé of famed Art Director Alexey Brodovitch, Kane would make the transition in 1958 after gaining recognition for a jazz-themed editorial he photographed for Esquire magazine. Kane would come to be known for his portraits of musicians and celebrities along with his fashion editorials. In 1970, Kane photographed a model for Harper’s Bazaar UK on the beaches of Cornwall, distorting the perspective so that the model appears as though she is displaced, elevated above the sky. For T Magazine’s Travel Winter 2009 Issue, photographer Camilla Åkrans recreated Kane’s 1970 image with model Arlenis Sosa on the beaches of Tobago.
