David Attie (1920–1982), a commercial and fine art photographer, began his photographic career as a student of influential Harper's Bazaar art director Alexey Brodovitch, who gave Attie his first professional assignment: to create a series of photo montages to illustrate Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's. Attie’s work appeared in Vogue, Time, Newsweek, and Harper’s Bazaar, among other publications. He produced two books of photographs, Russian Self-Portraits, and (together with Chuck Close, Robert Mapplethorpe, and others) Portrait: Theory.
