Édouard Boubat. Lella. Bretagne. 1947.

.

Boubat's photographs of his first wife, Lella, may be the most beautiful photographs any man has ever taken of a woman. He is clearly in love, but the romance never clouds her humanity: she remains resolutely - sometimes almost defiantly - herself, and one feels that's what Boubat loves most about her.

Édouard Boubat. Lella. 1948.

.

In his portraits of Lella, Boubat captures her sensuality without indulging in eroticism. He sees her sexual allure without any sense of urgency, as a simple fact of life, an essential part of her that blends seamlessly with the rest.

Édouard Boubat. Lella. Brittany. 1947.

.

His most iconic portrait of Lella, and one of my favorite portraits ever taken of any woman. It contains everything: a hint of sensuality, with the black bra showing through the muslin; the delicacy of her figure, heightened the calm resolve in her expression; and her beauty, which straddles the line between girlish and womanly.

I'm going to start spoiler tagging any comments I make. Sometimes I have things to say, but those things often feel unnecessary or superfluous. They can distract from the essence of the image.
A bold, possibly exploitative portrait. But there's such tenderness in it. Because he's talking on a phone, particular attention is drawn to the deformation of his missing ear.
