  3. Muriel Maxwell, American Vogue Cover. On July 1 1939 he took this photo, which clearly has influences from architecture and furniture design. Horst studied architecture in Paris and furniture design in Hamburg.9 3
  4. Marlene Dietrich, New York. In 1942 he took this photo, which Vogue art director Mehemed Agha said that if one could go around the pedestal, the image would still look as good. His skill in lighting and sculptural quality gave him the reputation as the magician or master of light.9 4
