Double Click: Twin Photographers in the Golden Age of Photography with Carol Kino, Jean Dykstra, and Nicole Straus
On March 7, art and culture journalist Carol Kino spoke with Jean Dykstra, editor of photograph magazine, and Nicole Straus, the founder of Nicole Straus Public Relations – who invited Kino to the exhibition at Howard Greenberg Gallery that inspired her book – Double Click: Twin Photographers in the Golden Age of Photography (Scribner). The McLaughlin twins were trailblazing female photographers, celebrated in the 1940s, and their circle included Irving Penn, Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn, Toni Frissell, Alex Liberman, Man Ray, and many more. Kino’s new book, which was supported by a fellowship at the New York Public Library’s Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers, provides a window onto the golden era of magazine photography and the lives of Frances McLaughlin-Gill and Kathryn Abbe.
