Vintage Spotlight: Alexey Brodovitch, Harpers Bazaar, Creative Director

 I just love the use of the human form compared to the design of the text in the magazine – beautiful images. Alexey Brodovitch was truly ahead of his time. Brodovitch is most widely recognized for his contribution to Harpers Bazaar magazine in Paris between the 1930s and 1950s.

    Our study of human form has developed the fabric of our civilizations.

    The Roman architect Vitruvius (Marcus Vitruvius Pollio), described the perfection of the human form in geometrical terms. This geometrical perfection (as he termed it) was the source of inspiration for numerous ancient temples. To quote him:
    “For without symmetry and proportion no temple can have a regular plan; that is, it must have an exact proportion worked out after the fashion of the members of a finely-shaped human body. “—Vitruvius, De Architectura: THE PLANNING OF TEMPLES, Book 3, Chapter I
