Ide Collar by Paul Outerbridge (1922)

The photograph titled “Ide Collar” was created by artist Paul Outerbridge in 1922. The image portrays a detached white shirt collar resting on a checked background. The collar appears to be of the Ide Style, as indicated by its printed text, “IDE STYLE 14 1/2 IDE & 1922 -1923.” The photograph exhibits a striking interplay of light and shadow, with the checkerboard pattern adding a sense of depth and geometric interest. The collar’s curvature contrasts with the sharp angles of the squares, giving the composition a dynamic and somewhat abstract quality. The image is monochromatic, with the white collar standing out prominently against the darker background checks.
