Photographer Deborah Turbeville, one of fashion’s lenswoman legends, has passed away at the age of 81. Known for her signature soft-focus and gauzy romanticism and painterly, textured melancholy, her photographic talents won her the admiration of art directors, editors, stylists, and designers worldwide. Read an interesting interview here with Deborah at Style.com about her career and reflections on 13 of her favorite images.

“Perhaps the most interesting thing about my photographs is that they are a little bit of an enigma; they’re hard to place… I’m working with fashion magazines; whereas in another era, I might have been an illustrator.”
