Philippe Halsman (1906-1979) was born in Riga, Latvia. He studied engineering in Dresden before moving to Paris, where he set up his photographic studio in 1932. Halsman’s bold, spontaneous style won him many admirers. His portraits of actors and authors appeared on book jackets and in magazines; he worked with fashion (especially hat designs), and filled commissions for private clients. By 1936, Halsman was known as one of the best portrait photographers in France.

A major non-Marxian influence on social democracy came from the British Fabian Society founded in 1884 by Frank Podmore that emphasised the need for a gradualist evolutionary and reformist approach to the achievement of socialism.  The Fabian Society was founded as a splinter group from the Fellowship of the New Life due to opposition within that group to socialism.  Unlike Marxism, Fabianism did not promote itself as a working-class-led movement and it largely had middle-class members.  The Fabian Society published the Fabian Essays on Socialism (1889) that was substantially written by George Bernard Shaw .  Shaw referred to Fabians as "all Social Democrats, with a common confiction [ sic ] of the necessity of vesting the organization of industry and the material of production in a State identified with the whole people by complete Democracy".  Other important early Fabians included Sidney Webb , who from 1887 to 1891 wrote the bulk of the Society's official policies.  Fabianism would become a major influence on the British labour movement.
