Description This photo, published in LIFE in 1957, shows Coco Chanel, aged 74, at her apartment on the Rue Cambon in Paris reclining on her massive divan. In notes taken from the LIFE picture library, it was noted that Mark Shaw “crept as close to Chanel as anyone is ever likely to get with their Leica on. She said so herself.”
Mark Shaw's informal, grainy, black and white images of Coco Chanel were created using an unobtrusive 35mm camera and film processing methods that enabled him to eliminate all other photographic equipment. Although Shaw's techniques increased the grain and contrast of the photographs, the lack of intimidating, distracting flash and lights allowed him to capture an unusually relaxed Chanel.

Image size 22" x 22"/Paper size 24" x 36"
