DOUBLE CLICK Twin Photographers in the Golden Age of Magazines

by | Read by Carlotta Brentan

Biography & Memoir • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

The fashion magazine industry of the 1940s is wonderfully realized by Carlotta Brentan's energetic, intelligent performance. Many in the fashion industry at that time came from socially prominent families, and Kathryn and Frances McLaughlin, the identical twin fashion photographers at the center of this narrative, were no exception. Brentan's bright tone and lively pace highlight the twins' privileged upbringing, forthright manner, and strong work ethic. As the narrative shifts from Kathryn's and Frances's personal and work lives to the fashion industry as a whole, listeners learn of how photographs were replacing illustrations and drawings as the means to capture women's interest in fashions. With WWII in the background and the lack of diverse representation in fashion, Brentan's polished narration captures a moment in time when photography was becoming part of mainstream media.
