Georges Dambier, whose work is the subject of a delightful exhibition at the Bonni Benrubi Gallery on East 57th Street (through May 14), liked to use Paris as the backdrop for his fashion photographs. Or Cannes or Marrakesh. This was the postwar world of jazz clubs, existentialists, cheap travel, uncrowded streets, beautiful cars, artists and, of course, Paris couture. With his Rolleiflex, Mr. Dambier, who will be 86 on Tuesday, captured all of this with honest joie de vivre, publishing his fashion images in French Elle. And he worked with some of the era’s great beauties: Suzy Parker, Dorian Leigh, Bettina, Marie-Hélène Arnaud, Capucine, Ivy Nicholson and a young Brigitte Bardot.
