RIP Bunny Yeager

The cult female photographer of the ’50s and ’60s, Bunny Yeager has just passed away. Starting out as a pin-up model herself, she eventually took over the camera and began shooting  friends in the nude. She was most famous for her work with Bettie Page and in the end, more of Page’s images (by Yeager) were featured on magazine covers than of Marilyn Monroe.

Last year in an interview about her work, Yeager said: “I’m not doing it to titillate anybody’s interests. I want to show off how beautiful my subjects are, whether it’s a cheetah or a live girl or two of them together. That’s more important to me than anything.”
