Richer did a number of body typing studies where he did front, rear, and profile views of models.
Were these the inspiration for the notorious Ivy League and Fort Sheredan body typing photos?
I made this composite, but note the enumerating block in the photos for matching.



  1. Iassume these were taken in the same session, but it'ds interesting that the rear view is all yellowed but the other two are not. Any idea why that would be?

    1. I acquired the three images separately and made the composite. The original photos or book pages were probably stored differently over the years resulting in the color difference. I actually took a class in how to store old photos when I curated my family's collection of 19th and early 20th C. pictures.
