Behind the pseudonym of Lor Dethal lies Nemanja Torlak, a writer for Widewalls intrigued and moved by diversity in art and in the lives of those who create it. It is often the unexpected that come forth and surprise us, and art is a world that allows it and makes it possible. David beats the Goliath daily, and writing about it is a pleasure.

Known for his “beauty photography” during the early 1940s, Fernand Fonssagrives was a French photographer who worked for Town and Country and Harper’s Bazaar magazines. Represented both in Europe and the United States, he was the highest paid photographer in New York during his career.
