Leaving behind a pioneering legacy, pin-up model turned pin-up photographer, Bunny Yeager, has sadly passed away yesterday at the age of 85. Born March 13, 1929 Yeager started her career as a pin-up model herself, eventually switching sides of the camera and becoming one of the most commercially successful female photographers of our time.
A well-respected figure, known for her more provocative approach to pin-up photography and connections in the industry, her work drew the attention of some of the best in the business. None other than Diane Arbus, one of Yeager’s contemporaries, once said on record that Yeager was “the world’s greatest pin-up photographer.”
A sad loss for the photography community, she leaves behind a legacy of incredible work. Carving out the genre of pin-up photography as we know it, Yeager’s photographic legacy will carry on for many decades to come.
