Following the advice of Richard Avedon, a famous photographer who had already established himself in the industry, Kellman decided to go to specialty stores to ask to borrow more glamorous garments for his models to wear in exchange for the photos and publicity. After showing his portfolio to one ad manager, Kellman was told that he could use their clothing and, if they liked his work, they’d use his photos for an August ad in Vogue in 1946. Kellman jumped on the opportunity, quickly developing the pictures he took in a darkroom he made in his mother-in-law’s laundry room, and carrying them back on the subway. “That was like the keys to the kingdom,” he said.
