Portrait / Portrait

i’ve been looking for a reason to do another one of these posts. truth is they’ve been featured on some of my favourite blogs lately, and i’ve received many kind emails from readers saying how much they like them. man, people on the internet are nice! so i dipped into my folders of saved vintage photos (all from doctor macro) & paired them with portraits that i love. ended up making way too many for one post… more to come later.

marilyn monroe / al greco – a lady in a fur wrap

susan haywardivan g. olinsky – serviceman’s wife

james dean / charles w. hawthorne

janet leigh / leigh louise gadbois

natalie wood / picasso – la toilette

sharon tate / félix vallotton – la liseuse

vintage sartorialist

i discovered a folder of images on my computer that i saved from the sartorialist ages ago, along with an incredibly huge folder of vintage design (i mean, what am i going to do with all of this?) considering how popular the last fashion + art post was (and how much i enjoyed doing it) i thought it would be fitting to smash some more together.

i’ll always remember the amazing visuals from the film Atonement – the memory of which was triggered by these William Morris textile & wallpaper designs.
