"Lillian Bassman, a magazine art director and fashion photographer who achieved renown in the 1940s and 50s with high-contrast, dreamy portraits of sylphlike models, then re-emerged in the 90s as a fine-art photographer after a cache of lost negatives resurfaced, died on Monday at her home in Manhattan. She was 94."
