Harper’s Bazaar, May 1947 photographer: Toni Frissell Dovima

Model Dovima was dressed in the first bikini to be seen away from France. Next to the Casablanca was a tall white diving platform up fifty feet. I called to the fisherman and asked if he would let my model pose below the diving board. The effect was remarkable. The picture won an art award the next year. —Toni Frissell
