Family Photos Are Incredible Passports to a Place Called Memory
My grandfather, Stanley Marcus, at five years old, circa 1910.
This boy grew up to become one of the world’s most well-known retailers with a refined sense of taste and style, whose leadership transformed his family’s Dallas clothing store, Neiman Marcus, into a globally recognized arbiter of fashion.
However, his refined sensibility was also expressed in his private passion for photography, shared only with family and close friends.
From photos of business trips in Europe to family celebrations, Stanley Marcus’s photographs showcase his gift for recognizing and capturing beauty.
