Baron George Hoyningen-Huene (1900-1968) was a seminal fashion photographer of the 1920s and 30s. He was born in Russia to Baltic German and American parents and spent his working life in France, England and the United States. Here are some of the most impressive shots he took of Ava Gardner in 1956 for MGM. For an even bigger dose of Miss Gardner, like us on Facebook for more shots, here.
