Double Click - Book Review
by Ricardo Santiago Soto, MBA

THE JOURNAL FOR INNOVATION CORPORATION

Writer, Carol Kino, BA., brings her art criticism and contributing writing experience to highlight the evolving world of photography magazines. The author covers the life of a set of female twins, Frances and Kathryn McLaughlin, who became photographers. Kino begins at Pratt Institute where the twins attended art college to study photography. Throughout the book Kino includes detailed stories of how the twins met Jack Kennedy or had their photos appear in Glamour, Vogue, Mademoiselle, and Conde Nast magazines. Carol reveals how Vogue began, among other magazine start-ups that eventually grew. The author uses research, history, and stories for entries. The twins were good with the guys, due to their high society communication skills. The McLaughlin twins eventually married Harper Bazaar photographers. You will want to add this book to your Vintage Miami Beach Glamour: Celebrities and Socialites in the Heyday of Chic (2019), Women in Art: 50 Fearless Creatives Who Inspired the World (2019), Forever Paris: 25 Walks in the Footsteps of Chanel, Hemingway, Picasso, and More (2012).
