German photographer Erwin Blumenfeld’s Dada background is evident in his collage-like images and photographic manipulations. For the cover of Vogue’s November 1, 1944 issue, Blumenfeld aimed to represent the void in the 1940s woman’s life, created by her husband off at war. The photographer placed a profile of a male silhouette directly on top of the cover girl to suggest that a piece of her, or her “better half,” is missing. In photographing model Moa Aberg for a 60s-inpired beauty editorial, photographer Camilla Åkrans seemingly looked to or was inspired by Blumenfeld’s 1944 cover, only replacing the male silhouette with a profile of Aberg herself in Vogue Italia’s March 2013 issue. Perhaps Åkrans means to say that the 60s woman did not look to men for fulfillment, she herself can fill the void.
