Paris cafés and nightlife in 1962 by Tom Palumbo

    Tom Palumbo (1921–2008)

    Brodovitch - the well-known Art Director of Harper's Bazaar -
    hired Tom Palumbo almost immediately
    and he stayed at the magazine for three years shooting everything
    from beauty features to movie stars and haute couture.
    Then he left for Vogue where he remained until 1962
    shooting covers and traveling on assignment
    around the world.

    Tom Palumbo archive is incredible.
    The fashion and celebrity work is wonderful - but so is this street photography.
    He became a theatre Director and was a member of the Actor's Studio.

    Here are some unplanned candids taken in Paris in 1962 - after the runway shows.
    The same week Yves St. Laurent's runway show vaulted Dior to new heights.

    Scenes of Paris cafés and nightlife were shoot
    at Les Halles (which no longer exists as it did then).
